Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Purgatorio, by Dante Alighieri, is part of the #LINK<Barnes & Noble Classics># series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics:
All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.

 

Perhaps the greatest single poem ever written, The Divine Comedy presents Dante Alighieris all-encompassing vision of the three realms of Christian afterlife. Joyfully anticipating heaven, Purgatorio continues the poets journey from the darkness of Hell to the divine light of Paradise.

Beginning with Dantes liberation from the Inferno, part two of The Divine Comedy follows the poet as he and the Roman poet Virgil struggle up the steep terraces of the earthly island-mountain called Purgatory, miraculously created as a result of Lucifers storied fall. As he travels through the first seven levels—each representing one of the seven deadly sins—Dante observes the sinners who are waiting for their release into Paradise. Each echelon teaches a new lesson about human healing and growth, on earth as well as in the spiritual world. As he journeys upward, level by level, Dante gradually changes into a wiser, braver, and better man. Only when he has learned from each of these stations will he finally be allowed to ascend to the gateway to Heaven: the Garden of Eden.

Perhaps Dantes most brilliant, imaginative creation, Purgatorio is an enthralling allegory of sin, redemption, and ultimate enlightenment.
