Product Description

About the Author

Dante Alighieri was born in Florence Italy in 1265. In 1301, a political dispute lead to his exile from Florence. Over the next few years he made his home in Verona, Lucca and other cities. By 1310 he had written Inferno and Purgatorio, the first two books of his Divine Comedy. He wrote the third and concluding book, Paradiso, in the years after he found sanctuary in Ravenna in 1318. An allegorical account of his wanderings in a spiritual wilderness and eventual salvation under the guidance of his beloved Beatrice, The Divine Comedy is recognised as Dante's masterwork and a landmark of world literature. He died in exile in 1321 and was buried in Ravenna.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Formatting 5 April 2012
By J. Oram
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would not bother with this version. Whether or not this is complete is almost impossible to say, since I have not yet managed to find the beginning of the book. The pages seem to be in the wrong order, the links and contents don't take you where you want to go. This is simply terrible!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, and NOT illustrated 14 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay, I appreciate this is free, but I remain confused. Where or how can you access the illustrations?

It clearly states this is illustrated and even credits Gustav Dore in the Index, along with mention of clicking on images to enlarge them, but I cannot for the life of me see or find any images and I've tried to go through the text page by page in case I've missed something. Help?

In light of the above, I can't recommend this at all. Awful. And the proliferation of links to every Canto and every part and sub-part --no doubt included to make things easier to navigate-- ultimately makes this look like a disorganized, hurried mess, and nigh on impossible to feel at ease with.

Not impressed. Amazon doesn't allow a zero star rating, unfortunately, but you get the gist.

1.0 out of 5 stars Substandard editing ruins the book 8 Mar. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is in a weird order - Dante's journey is from Hell, through Purgatory, to Paradise. The Kindle edition mixes the books up, places cantos out of order and has hyperlinks that don't go where they say they're going. It's impossible to read this in the order that Dante wrote it without a truely ridiculous amount of work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great work, terribly rendered 29 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This version is almost impossible to read. The cantos are not in any kind of order, pages are dispersed at random throughout. I realise that this is free, but free and unuseable is pointless.

Let down by an incredibly poor index that makes the text unreadable. Still, it cost nothing and you get what you pay for

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time 23 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For an 'Illustrated' version the total lack of any illustrations whatsoever, dooms this effort at the very start.
If I wanted the unillustrated version, then I would not have selected this one. I think this version has also been dammed by others due to it missing out some of the original's content.
I'd rather get another version that does have all of the content and actually HAS illustrations included... this version is just a waste of time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't try this
This is a very old, original translation, which made no sense whatsoever. I'm sure there must be a more modern translation available somewhere which would make it readable. Read more

Dante's epic journey is a must read for anyone, unfortunately until it's remade by Hollywood I doubt many will experience it.
