Reviews

'One hopes that in this, the National Year of Reading, Frances Lincoln's wonderful Inferno will be read throughout the land.'
I took the risk of promoting this exuberant collection at an academoc conference in Italy! Even a Dante scholar in the audience seemed charmed by Agard's 'take' on this classic text, superbly illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura who has become a regular illustrator of Agard's poetry. If it makes one reader go to the original, all to the good; there's plenty to admire in its own right in 13 dramatic cantos for teenage readers.
