"The English Dante of choice."—Hugh Kenner.

"Exactly what we have waited for these years, a Dante with clarity, eloquence, terror, and profoundly moving depths."—Robert Fagles, Princeton University.

"Tough and supple, tender and violent . . . vigorous, vernacular . . . Mandelbaum's Dante will stand high among modern translations."—The Christian Science Monitor

The finest of all Christian allegories, The Divine Comedy ranges over the whole culture -- theological as well as literary -- of the Middle Ages.
