This review is from: The Divine Comedy (Hardcover)
Having read many translations of this masterpiece I have often tried to compare them with each other for both beauty and clarity. Often this is not always the case as the 'Victorian' English mindset and language are at variance with the Italian spirit.
Mr James has however done a exquisite rendering of such a task.
If you ever read only one English translation then this is a good place to start
