    With an italian language classic such as this, it is important to know the translator. It turns out this version was done by Longfellow and it may be a fairly well regarded translation , but I didn't find it particularly engaging. I went back to the store & downloaded the translation by Chiardi that I remember from college. I think it will be much more satisfying.

    I don't know why it's not listed, but this translation of Dante is by Longfellow. I believe there are three well known English translations, maybe more. Just FYI
  • Wow!

    By Arthur CA
    Dante's way of expression Hell and the fears of it make his poem/book one of the most interesting things I have read. If I could rate it higher. I would!!

    Amazingly brilliant to the point where it is hard to put this book down.
