Publisher Comments:

Belonging in the company of the works of Homer and Virgil, The Inferno is a moving human drama, a journey through the torment of Hell, an expression of the Middle Ages, and a protest against the ways in which men have thwarted the divine plan.

@HolyHaha I have to climb a mountain now? You got to be kidding me. Is this a joke? Who the hell came up with story? VIIIRRRGGGILLLLLLLLLLL!

Synopsis:

So full was I of slumber at the moment

in which I had abandoned the true way . . .

O Muses, O high genius, now assist me

O memory, that didst write down what I saw,

. . . thy nobility shall be manifest

Although chiefly remembered for such works as The Psalm of Life, The Children's Hour and Hiawatha, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) spent many years as professor of modern languages at Bowdoin, and later at Harvard. In 1843, after several trips abroad, he began work on his translation of Dante.

Immensely popular, and commanding a larger audience than any other poet in America, Longfellow produced a body of work which skillfully rendered European culture into terms his New World readers readily appreciated — with his translation of The Inferno one of his most important offerings.

Synopsis:

All three volumes of Dante's "The Divine Comedy" are now available in striking new packages, translated by John Ciardi and each one featuring a new Afterword by Edward M. Cifelli. Revised reissue.,
