Divine Comedy, Hardback Book

Divine Comedy Hardback

Illustrated by Gustave Dore

Part of the Fall River Classics series

Description

Dante's Divine Comedy is one of the most highly regarded works of world literature and a classic that continues to inspire fiction and poetry today.

Written between 1308 and 1321, the three books of this epic poem- 'lnferno', 'Purgatorio' and 'Paradiso'- tell the story of the poet's personal journey through the afterlife, an odyssey that leads him from his wanderings in the spiritual wilderness to a paradise shaped by Divine love.

This edition of The Divine Comedy features the classic translation of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

It also features more than one hundred engravings by Gustave Dore, long considered the greatest artist to illustrate Dante's timeless masterpiece.
