"Dante and Virgil are the only centres of dignity in the landscapes of Doré’s Divine Comedy: the condemned figures of Hell, who in life were kings, popes, and other prominent figures, are vulnerable and exposed, frightening and deformed. As the Greeks understood, satire has a shaming and savage edge; it does not, after all, have to be funny." Jennifer Thorp • Oxonian Review
