9780099511977: Inferno (Vintage Classics)

On the evening of Good Friday in the year 1300, Dante finds himself lost in a dark and menacing wood. The ghost of Virgil offers to lead him to safety but the path lies through the terrifying kingdom of Satan. On his journey deep into the underworld, Dante crosses paths with both old acquaintances and famous persons from history as he witnesses the strange and gruesome sufferings of the damned on the seven levels of hell. This is Dante’s infamously dramatic, frightening, and sardonic look at the nature of sin, Christianity, and human morality.

Dante Alighieri is the famed author of The Divine Comedy, largely considered the greatest literary work in the Italian vernacular. Steve Ellis also translated Dante's Hell, and is the author of Chaucer and Virginia Woolf and the Victorians.

Review:

"Energetic, racy, rude and lyrical . . . buy this translation and spend a damn good season in hell."  —Independent

"A tour de force, alive, immediate, energetic and very moving."  —A.S. Byatt

"Excellent. Dante’s vision vibrates again in all its original colour. The effect is dazzling."  —Independent on Sunday
