Dante's masterpiece is undoubtedly one of the supreme works of world literature. Peter Dale's achievement has been to produce a complete version in modern English that echoes Dante's "sweet new style" while keeping to the poet's demanding terza rima verse pattern. It is a handsome reader's edition -- accurate, clear and compelling -- and contains a fascinating introduction on the poem's history, and its influence on English poetry through the ages.
