1. This book proposes a new critical method for the Divine Comedy which focuses not only on language-as-writing but also and equally on other discursive modes that the Divine Comedy authorizes.

2. This is the first book of its kind to apply semiotics and multimodality to the critical study of the Divine Comedy.

3, As of today, we do not have yet a critical theory that allows us to understand the combined function of semiotics and multimodality for the creation of new forms of signification in general and, most importantly, for the Divine Comedy.

4. This book aims at developing a semiotic theory of multimodality for those modes that emerge from Dante's text, and attempts to clarify the ontological boundaries and limitations set forth by different modalities.

5. It is an innovative, useful study which contributes to the advancement of Dante Studies, Literary Criticism (with a focus on literary semiotics), Multimedia/Multiliteracy, philosophy of language, communication, and education.
