All of Dante's vivid images the earthly sublime intellectual demonic ecstatic are r I had never read Dante's Inferno before even in college and always wished I had As a big horrorthrillerdrama fan Dante is often referenced and used as a structure for many similar novels I was lucky to find this version since obviously the original is in Italian and most English translations are still full of words that we simply don't use any or understand It does really help to have a healthy background on RomanGreek history This was the only thing I had some trouble with as it has been many years since I studied this aspect of history Due to all the famous Roman and Greek figures met along the way and the references to this period it will help other readers to maybe keep a history reference at hand if you also do not remember a lot of it

Inferno Bantam ClassicsIn this superb translation with an introduction and commentary by Allen Mandelbaum I highly recommend this translation of Dante's Inferno For many years Ciardi's translation has been the standard and it has much to recommend it But Ciardi's rhymed stanzas are looser wordier and less faithful to the original than Thornton's blank verse Thornton brings us closer to what Dante wrote And the excellent notes at the end of each canto help bring this masterpiece to life for a modern reader
