The divine comedy by Dante Alighieri( Book )

118 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing his ""Comedy"" (the epithet ""Divine"" was added by later admirers) in exile from his native Florence, Dante aimed to address a world gone astray both morally and politically. It tells the story of a character who is at one and the same time both Dante himself and Everyman
The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri : Hell. Purgatory. Paradise by Dante Alighieri( Book )

197 editions published between 1800 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Divine Comedy' begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity. Allen Mandelbaum's astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all poets. This Everyman's edition -- containing in one volume all three cantos, 'Inferno, ' 'Purgatorio, ' and 'Paradiso' -- includes an introduction by Nobel Prize-winning poet Eugenio Montale, a chronology, notes, and a bibliography. Also included are forty-two drawings selected from Botticelli's marvelous late-fifteenth century series of illustrations." ***"An epic poem in which the poet describes his spiritual journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise -- guided first by the poet Virgil and then by his beloved Beatrice -- which results in a purification of his religious faith."
Inferno by Dante Alighieri( Book )

140 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profound in its vision, powerfully and richly imagined, the Inferno is a creative tour de force -- at once a spiritual autobiography, and a brilliant portrait of the internecine struggles of medieval Italy. In it, Dante, guided by the spirit of Virgil, descends through the circles of Hell until he finally reaches the gigantic figure of Lucifer, 'hell's monarch', fixed in ice at the centre of the earth. With its stunning evocation of a landscape of fortress cities, burning sands, eternal storms and rivers of boiling blood inhabited by sinners of every hue --Amazon.com

Dante"s DIVINE COMEDY as translated by Charles Eliot Norton
The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )

8 editions published between 1814 and 1993 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume of this new Divine Comedy presents the Italian text of the Inferno and, on facing pages, a new prose translation (the first in twenty-five years). Robert Durling's translation brings a new power and accuracy to the rendering of Dante's extraordinary vision of Hell, with all its terror, pathos, and sardonic humor, and its penetrating analyses of the psychology of sin and the ills that plague society. Martinez and Durling's introduction and notes are designed with the first-time reader of the poem in mind but will be useful to others as well. The concise introduction presents essential biographical and historical background and a discussion of the form of the poem. The notes are more extensive than those in most translations currently available, and they contain much new material. In addition, sixteen short essays explore the autobiographical dimension of the poem, the problematic body analogy, the question of Christ's presence in Hell, and individual cantos that have been the subject of controversy, including those on homosexuality. There is an extensive bibliography, and the four indexes (to foreign words, passages cited, proper names in the notes, and to proper names in the text and translation) will make the volume particularly useful. Robert Turner's illustrations include detailed maps of Italy, clearly labeled diagrams of the cosmos and of the structure of Hell, and line drawings illustrating objects and places mentioned in the poem
