About the Author

Florentine poet Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) is best known for The Divine Comedy, a three-part epic poem that progresses from Hell (Inferno) to Purgatory to Paradise. Written in the vernacular, rather than Latin or Greek, Dante's masterpiece immediately found a wide audience; it is considered the greatest work of Italian literature and its author is regarded as the father of modern Italian.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882), author of The Song of Hiawatha and other beloved poems, was Professor of Modern Languages at Harvard University.

this is a good book but it is shadowed by both the Purgatorio and the Inferno. personally, i think that the Inferno is the best one out of the Divine Comedy, due to it's gripping visuals and depictions of what Hell is going to be like. the Paradiso, however, can be somewhat dull but the overall picture is amazingly beautiful. still a good read.
