This chapter examines British studies and research with regard to medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri. It explains that Dante and his Divina commedia have been a central preoccupation of British Italianists throughout the twentieth century and that it was the focus of the first two volumes of the influential Cambridge Studies on Medieval Literature series. Notable general studies of the Commedia include Sir Cyril Hinshelwood's article on its imagery, Sheila Ralphs' short book on allegorical patterns, and two longer books by Jeremy Tambling and Patrick Boyde.

Keywords:   Dante Alighieri, British research, British Italianists, Divina commedia, Italian poet, medieval poetry, medieval literature, Sir Cyril Hinshelwood, Sheila Ralphs, Jeremy Tambling
