This splendid verse translation by Allen Mandelbaum provides an entirely fresh experience of Dante's great poem of
penance and hope. As Dante ascends the Mount of Purgatory toward the Earthly Paradise and his beloved Beatrice, through "thatsecond kingdom in which the human soul is cleansedof sin," all the passion and suffering, poetryand philosophy are rendered with the immediacy ofa poet of our own age.

"Tough and supple, tender andviolent . . . vigorous, vernacular . . .Mandelbaum's Dante will stand high among moderntranslations."--The Christian Science Monitor
