Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The epic grandeur of Dantes masterpiece has inspired readers for 700 years, and has entered the human imagination. But the further we move from the late medieval world of Dante, the more a rich understanding and enjoyment of the poem depends on knowledgeable guidance. Robert Hollander, a renowned scholar and master teacher of Dante, and Jean Hollander, an accomplished poet, have written a beautifully accurate and clear verse translation of the first volume of Dantes epic poem, the Divine Comedy. Featuring the original Italian text opposite the translation, this edition also offers an extensive and accessible introduction and generous commentaries that draw on centuries of scholarship as well as Robert Hollanders own decades of teaching and research. The Hollander translation is the new standard in English of this essential work of world literature.

Synopsis:

The most cogent English translation of Dante's classic poem in years brings the epic poem of hell into the modern English language with subtle shadings of meaning intact. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [657]-694) and indexes.
