Excellent book that has helped me to understand the among of the Inferno. I read this alongside Dantes Inferno in Modern English while also following the English translation. Made things so much easier to understand.

It is useful, although there's not much to say. It is a limited guide, good for 6th form, not so useful for university and should only be complementary.

Very Satisfied 24 Oct. 2010
By C.A.W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I began the Comedy with Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's interpretation; which, though lofty and elegant, is about 10 times harder to comprehend than the King James version of the Bible. So I switched to A.S. Kline's interpretation. That, in concert with Cliff's Notes, made all the difference.

latin? please. 5 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Readers, please note: The two people who gave this negative reviews thought that The Inferno was written in Latin. It wasn't. Clearly, they read neither the Cliff's Note nor the book. Silly to write a review of a book that you know nothing about!

used it for school 9 Mar. 2014
By nicole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I used this version for a college humanities class. It's good to read before each canto because it gives you a good idea about what is goin on. This book does give you some back ground, which is good, but it is a better aid for leisure reading than for academic study. We are currently reading the translation by Anthony Esolen and I find the notes his book to be more in-depth and more useful for the class. Might be a better source for high school students?

a nice refresher 20 Aug. 2013

I bought this to go through before reading Dan Brown's Inferno to refresh my mind regarding Dante's original. I like the background information about Dante himself.

Help for Hell 5 Dec. 2012

Took the scary out of what I was reading by understanding the author's POV and backstory. Actually made it more interesting.
