The Divine Comedy. Text with translation in the metre of the original by Geoffrey L. Bickersteth. (New edition ... revised.)

Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso - the three fates of the deceased become the three pillars of an epic poem. The Divine Comedy, written by Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the fourteenth century, is considered the foremost work in Italian literature. The journey begins with Dante's descent into the depths of Hell where he witnesses those eternally separated from God. Then he climbs the mountain of Purgatory where Christian souls undergo final purification, before finally touring the celestial circles of Heaven where he is filled with the image of God. An allegorical work, the comed.

  • "Presents the standard Carlyle-Okey-Wicksteed translation of Dante's classic poem, with full notes."
  • "'Inferno' depicts a cruel underworld in which desperate figures are condemned to eternal damnation for committing one or more of seven deadly sins. As he descends through the nine concentric circles of increasingly agonising torture, Dante encounters doomed souls from history and his own time."
  • "Dante's greatest work, an epic poem, is a Christian allegory. Drawn from ancient Roman history and Dante's contemporary Italy, this work is a compassionate, oral evaluation of human nature and a mystic vision of the Absolute toward which mankind strives."
  • "IT IS AT ONCE A VISION OF THE OTHER WORLD, AN ALLEGORY OF CHRISTIAN LIFE, A SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY, AND A CYCLOPAEDIC EMBODIMENT OF ALL KNOWLEDGE OF ITS DAY."
  • "This single volume, blank verse translation of The Divine Comedy includes an introduction, maps of Dante's Italy, Hell, Purgatory, Geocentric Universe, and political panorama of the thirteenth and early fourteenth century, diagrams and notes providing the reader with invaluable guidance."

  • ""The Divine Comedy" begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity. Allen Mandelbaum's astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece of that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all poets. This Everyman's edition- containing in one volume all three cantos, Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso- includes an introduction by Nobel Prize- winning poet Eugenio Montale, a chronology, notes, and a bibliography. Also included are forty-two drawings selected from Botticelli's marvelous late-fifteenth-century series of illustrations."
  • "The Divine Comedy (Italian: Commedia, later christened "Divina" by Giovanni Boccaccio), written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321, is widely considered the central epic poem of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the Christian afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church. It helped establish the Tuscan dialect in which it is written as the Italian standard.- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia."
  • "Dante Alighieri's poetic masterpiece, The divine comedy, is a moving human drama, an unforgettable visionary journey through the infinite torment of Hell, up the arduous slopes of Purgatory, and on to the glorious realm of Paradise, the sphere of universal harmony and eternal salvation."@en

  • "Renowned critic and poet Clive James presents the crowning achievement of his career: a monumental translation of Dante's The Divine Comedy. The Divine Comedy is the precursor of modern literature, and Clive James's new translation - his life's work and decades in the making - presents Dante's entire epic poem in a single song."@en
  • "A stunning 3-in-1 deluxe edition of one of the great works of Western literature An epic masterpiece and a foundational work of the Western canon, The Divine Comedy describes Dante's descent into Hell with Virgil as his guide; his ascent of Mount Purgatory and reunion with his dead love, Beatrice; and, finally, his arrival in Heaven. Examining questions of faith, desire, and enlightenment and furnished with semiautobiographical details, Dante's poem is a brilliantly nuanced and moving allegory of human redemption. This acclaimed blank verse translation is published here for the first time in a one-volume edition."@en
  • "Presents a translation of Dante's allegorical poem."
  • "In the Divine Comedy Dante describes his imaginary journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. No other poem in any language has had such a wide appeal: the conception is so lofty, the music so beautiful and the interest of the narrative so sustained, that its importance has steadily increased."
  • "The John Ciardi translation."@en
  • "Dante Alighieri's poetic masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, is a moving human drama, an unforgettable visionary journey through the infinite torment of Hell, up the arduous slopes of Purgatory, and on to the glorious realm of Paradise'the sphere of universal harmony and eternal salvation. 10 illustrations."@en
  • "The most celebrated work of Dante is the Divine comedy--a vision of hell, purgatory and heaven that provides a strangely surrealistic view of medieval attitudes on religious dogma and the price of disobedience."@en
  • "Writing his ""Comedy"" (the epithet ""Divine"" was added by later admirers) in exile from his native Florence, Dante aimed to address a world gone astray both morally and politically. It tells the story of a character who is at one and the same time both Dante himself and Everyman."@en
  • "From Dante's revolutionary use of the vernacular Italian, this translation in blank verse remains a standard. These 101 cantos form the height of the fall-and-redemption genre that would influence every generation of writer since."@en

  • "Clive James presents the crowning achievement of his career: a monumental translation of Dante's Divine Comedy. The Divine Comedy is the precursor of modern literature, and Clive James' new translation - his life's work and decades in the making - presents Dante's entire epic poem in a single song. While many poets and translators have attempted to capture the full glory of The Divine Comedy in English, many have fallen short. Victorian verse translations established an unfortunate tradition of reproducing the sprightly rhyming measures of Dante but at the same time betraying the strain on the translator's powers of invention. For Dante, the dramatic human stories of Hell were exciting, but the spiritual studies of Purgatory and the sublime panoramas of Heaven were no less so. In this incantatory new translation, James - defying the convention by writing in quatrains - tackles these problems head-on and creates a striking and hugely accessible translation that gives us The Divine Comedy as a whole, unified, and dramatic work."

  • "An allegorical poem in which Dante, lost in a dark and frightening wood, meets the poet Virgil who offers to conduct him through hell, purgatory, and paradise. Dante describes the various regions of hell, the ascent to purgatory, and the beauty of heaven."@en
  • "Dante's Divine Comedy is one of the most highly regarded works of world literature and a classic that continues to inspire fiction and poetry today. Written between 1308 and 1321, the three books of this epic poem--Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso--tell the story of the poet's personal journey through the afterlife, an odyssey that leads him from his wanderings in the spiritual wilderness to a paradise shaped by Divine love. This edition of The Divine Comedy features the classic translation of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. It also features more than one hundred engravings by Gustave Dore, long considered the greatest artist to illustrate Dante's timeless masterpiece."@en
