The Divine Comedy is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the 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 standardized Italian. It is divided into three parts, the Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso.

On the surface the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven; but at a deeper level it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially the writings of Thomas Aquinas.
The work was originally simply titled Commedia and was later christened Divina by Giovanni Boccaccio. The first printed edition to add the word divine to the title was that of the Venetian humanist Lodovico Dolce, published in 1555 by Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari. (Wikipedia)

    I was disappointed

    The book, of course, is a classic but I was very disappointed in the translation and added notes. I find Charles Eliot Norton to be very big on himself. I would recommend (for anyone wanted to read The Divine Comedy) to find a different translation.

    Do Not Buy

    The illustrations go on top of text and mesh together from page to page obscuring the written word. A huge mess. Pity, since G. Dore is the best illustrator ever. NOT RECOMMENDED-DO NOT BUY.

    Abandon hope.

    This is a great disappointment. The reader lacks any dramatic range, natters on and on like a dotty old aunt through convoluted ideas, dialogue, and scenery. It is often a challenge to know which character is speaking, owing partly to very understated transitions provided by the translator. The publisher never does confess who the translator was, and fails to provide any supporting/critical materials such as the accompanying booklets in Penguin's Iliad and Odyssey readings which added so much depth to those (4 and 5 stars, respectively). I really wanted to enjoy this, but find I am loading each successive cassette more out of stubbornness than hopeful expectation.

    Hard read but soooo worth it

    This book is old, so the way this book is written is old and proper. It's a really good book though.

    I learned about Dante and the Divine Comedy in school. Not sure if I liked his whole idea about the area in between heaven and hell.

    Trying to return-no e-mail address

    Hi, trying to return this e-book. Not sure how to e-mail you if I cannot find an e-mail address. This is more toward the publisher. The book is excellent. Just not something that I want on my reader at the moment. Please and thank you.

    Larry
