Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a means of coping with the tragic death of his wife, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow composed this powerful translation of Dante's Inferno, assisted in his task by a group of prominent poets who rallied around him and christened themselves The Dante Club. Longfellow's much-anticipated translation made Dante's visionary poem accessible to an American reading public for the very first time. This new edition rediscovers a work of momentous critical impact that has been out of print since 1961.

Our Modern Library paperback is set from the original 1867 Ticknor and Fields edition and includes all of Longfellow's original "Notes and Illustrations" (selected excerpts and essays about Dante's poem), compiled for the first time as he intended them to be.

About the Author

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, American poet, educator, and linguist, wrote many long narrative poems, including The Song of Hiawatha, Evangeline, and The Courtship of Miles Standish.

Matthew Pearl is the author of the novel The Dante Club, published by Random House, and is a graduate of Harvard University and Yale Law School. In 1998 he won the prestigious Dante Prize from the Dante Society of America for his scholarly work. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Lino Pertile is a professor of Romance languages and literature at Harvard University. He specializes in Dante and the Latin Middle Ages.
