Summary

A brilliant and highly accessible new translation that captures Dante's masterpiece for today's readers. Elio Zappulla successfully re-creates the narrative's immediacy, directness, and transcendent force, while at the same time preserving the intellectual majesty and moral passion of the original text. 12 pages of illustrations. 416 pp.

Arguably the greatest single poem ever written, The Divine Comedy presents Dante Alighieri's all-encompassing vision of the three realms of Christian afterlife. In the Purgatorio, Dante struggles up the terraces of Mount Purgatory, still guided by Virgil, in continuation of his difficult ascent to purify.

"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 moderntranslations."--The Christian Science Monitor
