Product Description

Review

The best introduction imaginable to the greatest poem ever written. --Nick Lezard - The Guardian

Raise your hopes all ye who enter here...Hunt Emerson's INFERNO is hot as hell! ----Sir Christopher Frayling

About the Author

HUNT EMERSON began drawing comics in the early 1970s, and is among Britain's best humorous cartoonists. His irreverent adaptations of literature include Lady Chatterley's Lover, The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner and the life of Casanova in Casanova's Last Stand. He has worked with Kevin Jackson on comic books dealing with the ideas of 19th century artist, writer, critic and political theorist John Ruskin. Most recently he has drawn Little Plum and Ratz for The Beano. He has won many awards including the UK s Strip Cartoonist of the Year, and was chosen as one of 75 Masters of European Comics by France's CNBDI. His work has been translated into 10 languages. Much of his life has been influenced by childhood readings of MAD magazine.

...and I don't only mean Dante. Hunt Emerson's retelling/guide/analysis of The Inferno is a thing of wonder. It's on my bookshelf next to the Barbara Reynolds. What he does is, he brings out Dante's humour (parts of The Inferno are hilarious) and slyly pokes fun at the over-intellectualising of the poem. Dante is there to be enjoyed! Also check out his version of Lady Chatterly's Lover and his absolutely brilliant Rime of the Ancient Mariner which faithfully follows Coleridge's text. Emerson evidently loves, understands and FEELS the works he illustrates. Great stuff.

This is laugh out loud funny. I read Dante's Inferno a long time ago, and didn't really get it, but having raced through Hunt Emerson's version I'm inspire to go back and try again.

I read the Inferno both before and after reading this, and I can honestly say it made a lot more sense the second time around. Hunt Emerson's illustrations are both witty and ambitious and the writing manages to stay remarkably close to the source material while still being very funny. A must for those interested in Dante and those interested in comics in general.

A CRACKER! My 8yo son is now putting 'Dante's Inferno' on his read-a-thon book list after reading the whole thing in an afternoon.
