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.

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.

This is a scanned and OCD version of the text that is full of errors.

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.
