This introductory chapter sets out the focus of the book, Dante's reception in a wide range of media — visual art, literature, theatre, cinema, and music — during that ‘long nineteenth century’. The chapters explore various appropriations and interpretations of his works and persona during the era of modernization in Europe, the United States, and beyond; and they do so primarily from the perspective of national configurations. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
