The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, Volume 1: Inferno (Durling Translation) 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

This is a great book. The notes at the end of each canto make it very easy to understand the poetry and symbolism of Dante's work. What would really be great is if Durling ever decided to finish the Divine Comedy. It is pretty annoying to read the first part of the Comedy translated by one person then have to go find another translator's edition to finish the story.

I have a personal passion for the varrying translations of Inferno, and this is easily the best I have come across. The specific analysis include thematic essays and comparative analysis with Aenid and the Bible, linking each point to primary themes. The hidden autobiography, historical account of italy, and political commentary are touroughly analyzed. This book displays the awesome art of the Inferno
