    Synopsis
    The Dante Club includes such scholars and intellectual luminaries of mid-19th-century Boston as Longfellow, Holmes, and Lowell. Their attempt to introduce Dante's DIVINE COMEDY to the Harvard curriculum leads to a series of murders based on the grisly deaths in Dante's INFERNO. And it's up to the Dante Club to find the killers.

    Publisher's Note
    In 1865, the preparations of the Dante Club--led by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Oliver Wendell Holmes--to release the first translation of Dante's "The Divine Comedy" are threatened by a series of murders that re-create episodes from "Inferno."
     
    Industry reviews
    The scope and ambition of the novel reach beyond literary scholarship and the issues and tensions surrounding the translation of Dante, to reflect on the wider issues of the age....The literary trio--Longfellow, Lowell and Holmes--are wrested from the confines of their fireside reading club to become unlikely action heroes....Pearl's affectionate recreation of these characters...and his portrait of the literary process...form the heart of the book....The story's twists and turns are well handled, but it is the sophistication and insight the author brings to the analysis of THE INFERNO that are the book's great success."
