The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl

19 Sep

The war has just ended and the Dante Club, a group of intellectuals such as Oliver Wendell Holmes & Henry Wadsworth Longfellow are fighting to make sure Dante’s Inferno is available in the U.S. for consumption.  At the same time several murders take place that only the Dante Club knows are done in accordance to the levels of hell that Dante wrote about.  Not a light read but excellent mystery readers who like surprises.  Literary component, historical social issues which are relevant today.  Based on real people and facts.  2003, 367 pages.
