Product Description

Review

"Kirkpatrick brings a more nuanced sense of the Italian and a more mediated appreciation of the poem's construction than nearly all of his competitors. . . . There is much to recommend here-certainly the intelligence, the energy, the linguistic range. . . . His introduction and canto-by-canto notes are remarkably level and lucid, as attentive to structure as to syntax, language and motif, and deftly cross-reference the whole poem. On their own, they would justify the price." -"The Times" (London)

About the Author

Dante Alighieri was born in Florence in 1265 and belonged to a noble but impoverished family. He married Gemma Donati in his twenties and had four children. He met Beatrice, who was to be his muse, in 1274, and when she died in 1290 he sought distraction in philosophy and theology, and wrote La Vita Nuova. He worked on the Divine Comedy from 1308 until near the time of his death in Ravenna in 1321.

Robin Kirkpatrick is a poet and widely-published Dante scholar. He has taught courses on Dante's Divine Comedy in Hong Kong, Dublin, and Cambridge where is Fellow of Robinson College and Professor of Italian and English Literatures.

English on one side Italian on the other throughout. Lovely book incredible foreward which is a history lesson in itself. Really happy with the purchase.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Michael Panayi on 5 Feb. 2014
Format: Paperback
Kirkpatrick is a translator who follows no single theory of translation - this means that his text is intelligently woven and attentive to sonic and structural texture. And, after all, this is what Dante himself prized the most (as is evident from his De Vulgari Eloquentia). Not only do I recommend this text, but I insist that it is indispensible to anybody who calls him/herself a lover of literature. Paradiso, more than any text in the literary canon, is a work that will stay with you forever.
And for the literature student, Kirkpatrick's translations are fantastic because they come with extensive notes covering every single topic you may be asked to write about.
Enjoy! (I know I did!)
