A stunning 3-in-1 deluxe edition of one of the great works of Western literature
 
An epic masterpiece and a foundational work of the Western canon, The Divine Comedy describes Dante''s descent into Hell with Virgil as his guide; his ascent of Mount Purgatory and reunion with his dead love, Beatrice; and, finally, his arrival in Heaven. Examining questions of faith, desire, and enlightenment and furnished with semiautobiographical details, Dante''s poem is a brilliantly nuanced and moving allegory of human redemption. This acclaimed blank verse translation is published here for the first time in a one-volume edition.

Editorial Reviews

"We gain much from Kirkpatrick''s fidelity to syntax and nuance. . . . His introduction . . . tells you, very readable indeed, pretty much all you need for a heightened appreciation of the work."
