5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant translation!, 3 Oct. 2009
The length of this work may seem daunting to some but it is a fantastic book to dip in and out of without it losing any of its integrity or humour. Despite being written in the 14th century, it is full of innuendo and blasphemy and bound to keep any of it's readers entertained for a long time. The notes at the front and back of the Penguin edition are invaluable and I would fully recommend this book to anyone who is considering buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Guide, 23 July 2009
This review is from: Goya (Colour Library) (Paperback)
The book is a good summary of Goya's work and makes sure to include his most famous pieces (The Third of May, Saturn Devouring One of his Son and The Nude Maja etc.) Includes a brief summary about the subject and time period of each work. Useful introduction to Goya but is not a comprehensive reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Evermore!, 23 July 2009
The Raven is a brilliant poem, a perfect study for a grieving man's descent into madness. It is enjoyable enough on its own but Dore's illustrations are masterfully done and add to the sense of creepiness and claustrophobia created by the poem. A nice addition for fans of Edgar Allan Poe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 6 Jun. 2009
This was a brilliant edition of the masterpiece and before buying it I was apprehensive that I wouldn't understand half of it but the translation is simple and there is a wealth of notes at the back for further understanding. Would recommend this to anyone interested in reading The Divine Comedy.
