The Divine Comedy (Leather-bound Classics) ¿ O human race born to fly upward wherefore at a little wind dost thou so fall?Inferno Purgatorio and Paradisothe three fates of the deceased become the three pillars of an epic poem The Divine Comedy written by Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the fourteenth century is considered the foremost work in Italian literature The journey begins with Dantes descent into the depths of Hell where he witnesses those eternally separated from GodThen he climbs the mountain of Purgatory where Christian souls undergo final purification before finally touring the celestial circles of Heaven where he is filled with the image of GodAn allegorical work the comedy is representative of the souls journey towards God Influential for seven centuries this classic is a must have for lovers of great literature and the luxurious leather bound edition from Canterbury Classics will make a stunning addition to any library I researched carefully before purchasing a translation of The Divine Comedy and I am very happy with my translation by John Ciardi I see a different translations mentioned on this page but I purchased the exact text that is in the image I find it very readable and yet poetic surprisingly conversational in parts and only very rarely a little awkward in flow Since I am readingstudying on my own I needed my own wise guide I very much appreciate the notes at the end of each Canto instead of footnotes because they are less intrusive I can turn to the end when I want but I am not able to control my eyes from dropping down to a distracting footnote The notes supply just enough information to allow you to uickly continue reading and yet to do deeper research later on if you so choose Sometimes the notes are just a character identification while other times they delve uite a bit deeper for example a note on medieval theological thought which serves to clarify some lines The introductory essays were informative and I also found Ciardi's own essay on how he approached translation fascinating especially the sample evolution of a stanza from its original to its final translated version In the post Canto notes Ciardi also indicates when he ran into a true translation obstacle and then he explains why he translated the way he did The margins are nice and wide for annotation and the print a decent size by the way if you get tired eyes as I do I can't compare this translation to others because this is my first However my reading is rolling along and I couldn't be happier reader Å Leatherbound Classics ↠ Join or create book clubs
