Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a divine journey through the depths of Hell, Dante--with his guide, the poet Virgil--witnesses the fate of Earths sinners. Inferno, a 14th century poem and the first part of Dante Alighieris The Divine Comedy, paints an allegorical underworld in which sinners are punished in accordance with their sins. Journey through the darkness and meet famous historical and mythical figures and the fate that has become them, from Homer and Julius Caesar who dwell in Limbo with the unbaptized and the virtuous pagans, to Judas Iscariot and Satan himself, who dwell in the deepest circle of hell for the sin of treachery. Influential, even after seven centuries in print, readers of Inferno will appreciate the plethora of allusions both within and concerning this work, as well as the moral implications the story develops.
