Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The immortal drama of a journey through Hell.

Belonging in the immortal company of Homer, Virgil, Milton, and Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri's poetic masterpiece is a moving human drama, an unforgettable visionary journey through the infinite torment of Hell, a supreme expression of the Middle Ages, a glorification of the ways of God, and a magnificent protest at the ways in which men have thwarted the divine plan. One of the few literary works which has enjoyed a fame that was both immediate and enduring, The Inferno's power has not been lessened or obscured after six centuries. It confronts the most universal values — good and evil, free will and predestination — while remaining intensely personal and ferociously political, for it was born out of the anguish of a man who saw human life blighted by the injustice and corruption of his times.

Synopsis:

Considered one of the greatest literary works of all time, Dante's immortal drama of a journey through Hell is the first volume of his "Divine Comedy." Original.

Oh, hell! What can I say? This is a great translation by John Ciardi, a fine poet in his own right. But Ciardi displays admirable grace under fire (pun intended) to let Dante’s words shine through without intruding with his own poetic intentions. Brilliant notes are a highlight of this text. Everything is explained, everything!
