The Divine Comedy: Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso

Robin Kirkpatrick, Dante Alighieri

Robin Kirkpatrick’s superb translation of the most famous work of Italian literature, in a one-volume edition The Divine Comedy describes Dante’s descent into Hell with Virgil as a guide; his ascent of Mount Purgatory and encounter with his dead love, Beatrice; and finally, his arrival in Heaven. Examining questions of faith, desire and enlightenment, the poem is a brilliantly nuanced and moving allegory of human redemption. This major translation, described by Bernard O'Donoghue as ‘likely to be the best modern version of Dante’, is published here for the first time in a single volume.
