The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri ( Book )
35 editions published between 1932 and 2013 in English and held by 1,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In middle age Dante realizes he has strayed from the True Way into the Dark Wood of Error, or Wordliness. When he realizes his loss, he looks up to see the first light of the sun, the symbol of divine illumination, lighting the top of a small hill, the Mount of Joy. It is Easter, the time of resurrection and rebirth. These symbols fill Dante with hope and he sets out immediately to climb to the top of Mount Joy. His way is blocked, however, by the Three Beasts of Worldliness--the Leopard of Malice and Fraud, the Lion of violence and ambition, and the She-Wolf of Incntinence--who will drive him back into the darkness of error. When all seems lost, Virgil, Dante's symbol of human reason, to lead him from error. With the easy way to the Mount of Joy blacked, Dante must travel the more difficult way through Hell and Purgatory before reaching the light of God. To help him, Virgil offers Dante another Guide--Beatrice, the symbol of divine love
The Divine comedy [the Carlyle-Wicksteed translation] by Dante Alighieri ( Recording )
10 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dante's theme is universal. ... The story is an allegory representing the soul's journey from spiritual depths to spiritual heights. As mankind exposes itself, by its merits or demerits, to the rewards or the punishments of justice, it experiences 'Inferno' or hell, 'Purgatorio' or purgatory, and 'Paradiso' or heaven, a vision of a world of beauty, light, and song"--container
The inferno of Dante Alighieri : a new translation by Dante Alighieri ( Book )
23 editions published between 1900 and 1970 in English and Italian and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Inferno, the first volume of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, is an imaginative tour de force. In this celebrated work -- widely considered to be one of the greatest in the Western canon -- Dante's literary hero Virgil guides him through Hell, showing him the inhabitants of each of its nine circles and examples of the divine justice meted out to them. Originally written in colloquial Italian, The Inferno was intended by Dante as a poem for the common reader. In his new translation, Ciaran Carson has constructed a version that is suffused with wit, anger and irreverent vigor. Carson, an award-winning Irish poet, accents his Inferno with vivid Hiberno-English idioms, drawing on the Irish poetic and balladmaking tradition to create rhymes that sparkle and stimulate. Carson's swift intelligence never diminishes the pathos of the original, however, and Dante's visions of Hell -- and his pity for some of the damned -- shine through undimmed. This is a truly original retelling of Dante's epic journey that will surprise and renew the twenty-first-century reader's faith in the art of translation. Remarkably inventive, Carson's Inferno is deserving of comparison with Seamus Heaney's Beowulf and Ted Hughes's Tales from Ovid
