Dante's Divine Comedy is regarded as a masterpiece of medieval literature, telling the story of Dante's descent into hell, his journey through purgatory and eventual ascent into heaven, with Virgil as his guide.
The tale's profound Christian message and detailed social and political commentary of fourteenth century Italy weave a rich tapestry of interpretation, meaning and symbolism. From the pilgrim's deepening insight into the workings of evil and moral choice (Hell) through to the dramatization of the nature and purpose of moral conversion (Purgatory) to the blissfully mystical ascent before God (Paradise), Dante's cosmic vision remains unparalleled
This edition includes Henry W. Longfellow's classic translation, the magnificent illustrations of Gustave Dore and a brilliant introduction by Anna Amari-Parker, full of accessible analysis of Dante's allegorical tale.
