Purgatory: Dual Language and New Verse Translation, Paperback / softback Book

Purgatory: Dual Language and New Verse Translation Paperback / softback

Part of the Evergreens series


Describing Dante's second stage in his arduous journey to redemption, Purgatory features a host of unforgettable scenes and characters, and arguably some of the best poetry to be found in the Divine Comedy.

The gloom, torments and evils of Hell have been left behind, but Dante's ascent of Mount Purgatory towards Paradise remains fraught with obstacles, not least the burden of his own mortality and his human passions. Purgatory is presented here in a new verse translation by acclaimed poet and prize-winning translator J.G.

Nichols. Also included are the original Italian text, extensive notes and a critical apparatus focusing on Dante's life and works.
