The Divine Comedy: Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso (Penguin Classics) Paperback
by Dante Alighieri. Edition Date:: 01/01/1970

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 BLEEP 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 in a one-volume edition in Penguin Classics' black-spine dress.
