Synopsis

This is the first volume of a new prose translation of Dante's epic - the first in twenty-five years. Robert Durling's translation brings a new power and accuracy to the rendering of Dante's extraordinary vision of Hell, with its terror, pathos, and sardonic humour, and its penetrating analyses of the psychology of sin and the ills that plague society. A newly edited version of the Italian text can be on facing pages, and this edition includes fully comprehensive notes as well as sixteen essays on special subjects.

Customer Reviews

This is probably the best one-volume bilingual version of Dante's Inferno on the market. Not only is it remarkably affordable, it is astonishingly complete -- detailed helpful notes assist the reader in the many details that would have been obvious to Dante's readers. I recommend this most highly.
