The Divine Comedy

by Dante Alighieri

Dante's Divine Comedy relates the allegorical tale of the poet's journey through the three realms of the dead. Accompanied through the Inferno and Purgatory by Virgil--author of the Roman epic the Aeniad--Dante encounters mythical, historical, and contemporaneous figures in their respective afterlives. Relying on classical (pagan) mythology and Christian imagery and theology, Dante imagines diverse vivid and inventive punishments for the various sinners he encounters, which have become part of the Western imagination. Upon their approach to Paradise, which as a pagan, no matter how worthy, the Latin poet cannot enter, Virgil relinquishes his role as guide to Beatrice. Dante's chaste beloved then accompanies him along the ascent, as they encounter the blessed and the holy, and Dante arrives at a vision of the heavenly paradise.

Vergil rebukes his cowardice, and relates how Beatrice visited him in Limbo, and sent him to Dante's aid. Dante declares himself encouraged and ready to set out. Day was departing, and the dusky air Releasing from their toils the animals Which are on earth; and I, all, all alone, Prepared myself to undergo the stress Both of the journey and the suffering, Which memory that errs not shall portray. Now Muses, aid me Lofty genius, aid 0 Memory, who hast written what I saw, Here shall thy nobleness be manifest. 10 I thus began: Poet, who guidest me, Consider well my power if it suffice, Ere thou commit me to the arduous road. Thou sayest Silvius' father, mortal still, Went to the world immortal, and was there Bodily-wise. If gracious then to him The Adversary of all evil was, ? Considering the great result, from him Destined to issue, and the who and what, ? This, to a man of understanding, seems 20 Not unbefitting; for of sacred Rome And of her empire, he, in highest Heaven, Was chosen to be father; both of which, To say the truth, were for the holy place Decreed, where he who the successor is Of greater Peter, sits.

The Divine Comedy - Hell

by Dante Alighieri Translator Dorothy L. Sayers (Introduction by

Guided by the poet Virgil, Dante plunges to the very depths of Hell and embarks on his arduous journey towards God. Together they descend through the nine circles of the underworld and encounter the tormented souls of the damned - from heretics and pagans to gluttons, criminals and seducers - who tell of their sad fates and predict events still to come in Dante's life. In this first part of his Divine Comedy, Dante fused satire and humour with intellect and soaring passion to create an immortal Christian allegory of mankind's search for self-knowledge and spiritual enlightenment.

The Divine Comedy: Paradise

by Dante Alighieri

In Paradise, having plunged to the uttermost depths of Hell and climbed the Mount of Purgatory, Dante ascends to Heaven, continuing his soul's search for God, guided by his beloved Beatrice. As he progresses through the spheres of Paradise he grows in understanding, until he finally experiences divine love in the radiant presence of the deity. Examining eternal questions of faith, desire and enlightenment, Dante exercised all his learning and wit, wrath and tenderness in his creation of one of the greatest of all Christian allegories. Translation is by Dorothy L. Sayers, completed and introduced by Barbara Reynolds.

The Divine Comedy: Purgatory

by Dante Alighieri

Beginning with Dante's liberation from Hell, Purgatory relates his ascent, accompanied by Virgil, of the Mount of Purgatory - a mountain of nine levels, formed from rock forced upwards when God threw Satan into depths of the earth. As he travels through the first seven levels, Dante observes the sinners who are waiting for their release into Paradise, and through these encounters he is himself transformed into a stronger and better man. For it is only when he has learned from each of these levels that he can ascend to the gateway to Heaven: the Garden of Eden. The second part of one of the greatest epic poems, Purgatory is an enthralling Christian allegory of sin, redemption and ultimate enlightenment.

The Divine Comedy: Volume 1, Inferno

by Dante Alighieri Mark Musa

The most famous of the three canticles that comprise "The Divine Comedy, Inferno" describes Dante's descent in Hell midway through his life, with Virgil as a guide. As he descends through nine concentric circles of increasingly agonizing torture, Dante encounters doomed souls that include the pagan Aeneas, the liar Odysseus, the suicidal Cleopatra, and his own political enemies, damned for their deceit. Led by leering demons, Dante must ultimately journey with Virgil to the deepest level of all for it is only by encountering Satan himself, in the heart of Hell, that he can truly understand the tragedy of sin.

Inferno

by Dante Alighieri

An extraordinary new verse translation of Dante's masterpiece, by poet, scholar, and lauded translator Anthony Esolen Of the great poets, Dante is one of the most elusive and therefore one of the most difficult to adequately render into English verse. In theInferno, Dante not only judges sin but strives to understand it so that the reader can as well. With this major new translation, Anthony Esolen has succeeded brilliantly in marrying sense with sound, poetry with meaning, capturing both the poem's line-by-line vigor and its allegorically and philosophically exacting structure, yielding anInfernothat will be as popular with general readers as with teachers and students. For, as Dante insists, without a trace of sentimentality or intellectual compromise, even Hell is a work of divine art. Esolen also provides a critical Introduction and endnotes, plus appendices containing Dante's most important sources--from Virgil to Saint Thomas Aquinas and other Catholic theologians--that deftly illuminate the religious universe the poet inhabited.

The Inferno

Featuring the original Italian text opposite the translation, this edition also offers an extensive and accessible introduction and generous commentaries that draw on centuries of scholarship as well as Robert Hollander's own decades of teaching and research.
