On a divine journey through the depths of Hell, Dante--with his guide, the poet Virgil--witnesses the fate of Earth s sinners. Inferno, a 14th century poem and the first part of Dante Alighieri s The Divine Comedy, paints an allegorical underworld in which sinners are punished in accordance with their sins. Journey through the darkness and meet famous historical and mythical figures and the fate that has become them, from Homer and Julius Caesar who dwell in Limbo with the unbaptized and the virtuous pagans, to Judas Iscariot and Satan himself, who dwell in the deepest circle of hell for the sin of treachery. Influential, even after seven centuries in print, readers of Inferno will appreciate the plethora of allusions both within and concerning this work, as well as the moral implications the story develops. w available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series, Inferno is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers. -

Product Description:

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘There is no greater sorrow then to recall our times of joy in wretchedness.’

Considered one of the greatest medieval poems written in the common vernacular of the time, Dante’s Inferno begins on Good Friday in the year 1300. As he wanders through a dark forest, Dante loses his way and stumbles across the ghost of the poet Virgil. Virgil promises to lead him back to the top of the mountain, but to do so, they must pass through Hell, encountering all manner of shocking horrors, sins and evil torments along the way, evoking questions about God’s justice, human behaviour and Christianity.

About the Author:

Durante degli Alighieri, or Dante (c. 1265–1321), was one of the major Italian poets of the Middle Ages and is referred to as the father of the Italian language. His ‘Divine Comedy’ is widely considered to be the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature.
