The Divine Comedy

The acclaimed translation of the Inferno that retains all of the style, power, and meaning of the original.

This vigorous translation of the Inferno preserves Dante's simple, natural style, and captures the swift movement of the original Italian verse. Mark Musa's blank verse rendition of the poet's jouney through the circles of Hell re-creates for the modern reader the rich meanings that Dante's poem had for his contemporaries. Musa's Introduction and commentaries on each of the cantos brilliantly illuminate the text.
