Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dante (1265-1321) is the greatest of Italian poets and his DIVINE COMEDY is the finest of all Christian allegories. To the consternation of his more academic admirers, who believed Latin to be the only proper language for dignified verse, Dante wrote his COMEDY in colloquial Italian, wanting it to be a poem for the common reader. This edition is translated by, and includes an Introduction by, Dorothy L. Sayers.

Synopsis:

Having climbed the Mount of Purgatory, Dante ascends to Heaven, continuing his soul's search for God and guided by his beloved, Beatrice. As he progresses through the spheres of Paradise he grows in understanding, until he finally experiences divine love in God's presence.

About the Author

Dante Alighieri was born in 1265. Considered Italy's greatest poet, this scion of a Florentine family mastered in the art of lyric poetry at an early age. His first major work is La Vita Nuova (1292) which is a tribute to Beatrice Portinari, the great love of his life. Married to Gemma Donatic, Dante's political activism resulted in his being exiled from Florence to eventually settle in Ravenna. It is believed that The Divine Comedy—comprised of three canticles, The Inferno, The Purgatorio, and The Paradiso—was written between 1308 and 1320. Dante Alighieri died in 1321.

Barbara Reynolds, retired lecturer in Italian at Cambridge University, holds three honorary doctorates. She translated Ariostos Orlando Furioso for Penguin Classics and finished Dorothy L. Sayerss translation of Dantes Paradise after Sayerss death.
