John Flaxman : the illustrations for Dante's Divine comedy by John Flaxman( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dante's Divine Comedy, one of the masterworks of European literature, has inspired artists from Botticelli to William Blake, and from Gustave Dore to Robert Rauschenberg and Tom Phillips. The great English Neoclassical sculptor, John Flaxman, is no exception." "Flaxman's drawings for the Divine Comedy are published for the first time in this volume. Famous for his designs for Wedgwood, Flaxman illustrated all 100 cantos of Dante's poem. The book includes the complete series of drawings, together with the preparatory studies, accompanied by Flaxman's annotations. A critical commentary on each drawing completes this book, an important addition to Dante studies and Flaxman scholarship."--Jacket
The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )

12 editions published between 1867 and 1907 in English and held by 58 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). The editor'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. The 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). 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

The Iliad by Homer( Book )

2 editions published in 1859 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The centuries old epic about the wrath of Achilles is rendered into modern English verse by a renowned translator and accompanied by an introduction that reassesses the identity of Homer. In Robert Fagles' beautifully rendered text, the Iliad overwhelms us afresh. The huge themes godlike, yet utterly human of savagery and calculation, of destiny defied, of triumph and grief compel our own humanity. Time after time, one pauses and re-reads before continuing. Fagles' voice is always that of a poet and scholar of our own age as he conveys the power of Homer. Robert Fagles and Bernard Knox are to be congratulated and praised on this admirable work
