About Organs and Blood:

"The new version of Dante’s Inferno, by an internationally famous Dante scholar and his wife, the poet Jean Hollander, is accompanied by a detailed, brilliant commentary that is itself worth the price of the volume. For the student of Dante this book is not only an indispensable guide, it is also an intellectual feast"
—Laurence Lieberman

"Here is poetry with sweetness and bite, poetry that rewards rereading."
—George Core
