From the Publisher"Raffel's uncanny skill has captured Dante the poet and brought his world, his vision to life. This poem for the ages comes to us when we most need it, and ti comes to us as a living, breathing force of nature. The accomplishment is as breathtaking to contemplate as it is pleasurable to read. This is our time's Divine Comedy."
—Michael Hettich, author of Flock and Shadow: New and Selected Poems
"Burton Raffel's translation is both accurate and poetic, letting the English reader experience Dante's journey as never before. It is no less than magic—an act of sheer necromancy, bringing Dante back from the dead."
—Tita French Baumlin, Missouri State University
