Abstract

Women writers and scholars in nineteenth-century britain, exluded from the world of male scholarship, became active popularisers of Dante's works. They wrote versions for children and for adult readerships with cultural and religious aspirations. This essay surveys the way in which dante became a commodity at their hands.
