Product description

Review

This new edition provides a powerful example of how a sensitive handling of the material can enhance our reading of the poem, rather than entice us with the illusory prospect of fully grasping its meaning. The book's great virtue is that its focus is the poem itself, in the original. (Matthew Treherne, Times Literary Supplement)

Durling and Martinez handle the scholarship with just the lightness of touch that is required. Nowhere is this clearer than in their treatment of the theology of the Purgatorio. (Matthew Treherne, Times Literary Supplement)

... this book makes the case that we should approach the poem in the spirit of the Italian word "peregrini", as travellers in meaningful search. We are richer for it. (Matthew Treherne, Times Literary Supplement) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Mr. Sinclair's three-volume prose translation of Dante's Divine Comedy should prove to be an invaluable source of pleasure to those English readers who would read this great medieval classic with understanding. The original Italian text and the Sinclair translation are arranged on facing pages, and the commentaries, brilliant examples of genuine literary criticism, appear after each canto.
