The Divine Comedy, translated by Allen Mandelbaum, begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity.

 

Mandelbaum’s astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece of that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all poets.

 

This Everyman’s edition–containing in one volume all three cantos, Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso–includes an introduction by Nobel Prize—winning poet Eugenio Montale, a chronology, notes, and a bibliography. Also included are forty-two drawings selected from Botticelli's marvelous late-fifteenth-century series of illustrations.

sccrtomboy4evr, October 29, 2007 (view all comments by sccrtomboy4evr)
The title of the "Divine Comedy" is midleading for most people because when they hear the word, 'comedy' they think that the story will be a humorous one. This is nowhere near being humorous, unless you are a person who enjoys the aspect of the German term, schadenfreude, or the happiness of the misfortune of others. No, this is not what is thought of today as a comedy. It is an account of Dante's journey (fictional in all its sense), through what he thinks is hell, purgatory, and heaven. He is alive throughout the poem, however. It is called a comedy because the ending is a happy one. This term is from Shakepearian times, and it is the opposite of a 'tragedy.' Either way, it is perhaps one of the greatest stories told of all time and is a great read, even if you aren't religious.
