The divine comedy by Dante Alighieri( Book )

83 editions published between 1908 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translator Allen Mandelbaum brings to contemporary readers the first and most famous part of Dante's Divine Comedy: the poet's classic journey through the underworld.

For as we're led to the last circle of the Inferno, we recognize the very worst in human nature -- and the ever-abiding potential for redemption
