Dante and his personal journey of the spirit.
Kirkpatrick's translation is excellent. It ranks with Musa and Hollander's work. This is a literate Dante which would be accessible to high-school through adult readers. It would be appropriate to a course on Dante or late medieval Europe. Italian text printed alongside the English. Well-formatted and excellent print quality.

Excellent Clear Translation
I like this series of the Divine Comedy because you have the Italian original and an excellent English translation side by side. The notes and lenghthy explanations are quite good also if you want to delve into the culture of Italy at that time period.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
