Inferno: A New Translation

An innovative and fascinating new version of Dante Alighieri's Inferno as it has never been rendered Stopped mid-motion in the middle Of what we call a life, I looked up and saw no sky- Only a dense cage of leaf, tree, and twig. I was lost. --from Canto I Award-winning poet Mary Jo Bang has translated the Inferno into English at a moment when popular culture is so prevalent that it has even taken Dante, author of the fourteenth century epic poem, The Divine Comedy , and turned him into an action-adventure video game hero. Dante, a master of innovation, wrote his poem in the vernacular, rather than in literary Latin. Bang has similarly created an idiomatically rich contemporary version that is accessible, musical, and audacious. She's matched Dante's own liberal use of allusion and literary borrowing by incorporating literary and cultural references familiar to contemporary readers: Shakespeare and Dickinson, Freud and South Park, Kierkegaard and Stephen Colbert. The Inferno--the allegorical story of a spiritual quest that begins in a dark forest, traverses Hel...

Inferno (Divina Commedia Vol. 1) (Italian Edition)

La Commedia o Divina Commedia (originariamente Comedìa; l'aggettivo Divina, attribuito da Boccaccio, si ritrova solo a partire dalle edizioni a stampa del 1555 a cura di Ludovico Dolce) è un poema di Dante Alighieri, scritto in terzine incatenate di versi endecasillabi, in lingua volgare fiorentina. Composta secondo la critica tra il 1307 e il 1321,[1] la Commedia è l'opera più celebre di Dante, nonché una delle più importanti testimonianze della civiltà medievale; conosciuta e studiata in tutto il mondo, è ritenuta uno dei capolavori della letteratura mondiale di tutti i tempi.[2] Il poema è diviso in tre parti, chiamate cantiche (Inferno, Purgatorio e Paradiso), ognuna delle quali composta da 33 canti (tranne l'Inferno, che contiene un ulteriore canto proemiale). Il poeta narra di un viaggio attraverso i tre regni ultraterreni che lo condurrà fino alla visione della Trinità. La sua rappresentazione immaginaria e allegorica dell'oltretomba cristiano è un culmine della visione medioevale del mondo sviluppatasi nella Chiesa cattolica.

The Inferno (Signet Classics)

Belonging in the immortal company of the works of Homer, Virgil, Milton, and Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri’s poetic masterpiece is a visionary journey that takes readers through the torment of Hell. The first part of Dante ’ s Divine Comedy  is many things: a moving human drama, a supreme expression of the Middle Ages, a glorification of the ways of God, and a magnificent protest against the ways in which men have thwarted the divine plan. One of the few literary works that has enjoyed a fame both immediate and enduring, The Inferno remains powerful after seven centuries. It confronts the most universal values—good and evil, free will and predestination—while remaining intensely personal and ferociously political, for it was born out of the anguish of a man who saw human life blighted by the injustice and corruption of his times. Translated by John Ciardi With an Introduction by Archibald T. MacAllister and an Afterword by Edward M. Cifelli

Inferno (Norton Critical Editions)

This Norton Critical Edition of Dante’s masterpiece is based on Michael Palma’s verse translation, which is acclaimed for its elegant rendering of Dante’s triple-rhyme scheme into contemporary English. Richard Wilbur praises Palma’s translation as “accurate as to sense, fully rhymed, and easy, as a rule, in its movement through the tercets. Readers will find it admirably clear and readable.” The text is accompanied by detailed explanatory annotations. Also included in this edition are an illuminating introduction by Giuseppe Mazzotta, a Translator’s Note, The Plan of Dante’s Hell, and six maps and illustrations. “Criticism” provides twelve interpretations by, among others, John Freccero, Robert M. Durling, Alison Cornish, Teodolinda Barolini, Giuseppe Mazzotta, and Robert Hollander. A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.

The Divine Comedy (Leather-bound Classics)

“O human race, born to fly upward, wherefore at a little wind dost thou so fall?” Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso--the three fates of the deceased become the three pillars of an epic poem. The Divine Comedy , written by Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the fourteenth century, is considered the foremost work in Italian literature. The journey begins with Dante’s descent into the depths of Hell where he witnesses those eternally separated from God. Then he climbs the mountain of Purgatory where Christian souls undergo final purification, before finally touring the celestial circles of Heaven where he is filled with the image of God. An allegorical work, the comedy is representative of the soul’s journey towards God.     Influential for seven centuries, this classic is a must have for lovers of great literature, and the luxurious leather-bound edition from Canterbury Classics will make a stunning addition to any library.

The Divine Comedy: Dante Inferno Purgatorio Paradiso (Vintage Classics)

The complete Divine Comedy ( Inferno , Purgatorio , Paradiso ) in one volume from Vintage Classics. The greatest poem of the Middle Ages, in the standard Carlyle-Okey-Wickstead translation, with full notes. Dante’s Divine Comedy relates the allegorical tale of the poet’s journey through the three realms of the dead. Accompanied through the Inferno and Purgatory by Virgil—author of the Roman epic the Aeniad —Dante encounters mythical, historical, and contemporaneous figures in their respective afterlives. Relying on classical (pagan) mythology and Christian imagery and theology, Dante imagines diverse vivid and inventive punishments for the various sinners he encounters, which have become part of the Western imagination.   Upon their approach to Paradise, which as a pagan, no matter how worthy, the Latin poet cannot enter, Virgil relinquishes his role as guide to Beatrice. Dante's chaste beloved then accompanies him along the ascent, as they encounter the blessed and the holy, and Dante arrives at a vision of the heavenly paradi...

LA DIVINA COMEDIA (Spanish Edition)

Dante Alighieri (Florencia, c. 29 de mayo de 1265 – Rávena, 14 de septiembre de 1321) fue un poeta italiano. Su obra maestra, La Divina Comedia, es una de las obras fundamentales de la transición del pensamiento medieval al renacentista. Es considerada la obra maestra de la literatura italiana y una de las cumbres de la literatura universal.[1] [2] En italiano es conocido como "el Poeta Supremo" (il Sommo Poeta). A Dante también se le llama el "Padre del idioma" italiano. Su primera biografía fue escrita por Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375), en Trattatello in laude di Dante.

The Divine Comedy

This epic narrative poem is Dante's account of his fictional journey through hell, purgatory, and heaven with his guide, the ancient Roman poet Virgil. It consists of a trio of canticas-Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso-which represent each stage of his journey as well as the importance of the number three throughout the work. Each cantica, or book, consists of thirty-three cantos, which added to an introductory canto, results in a total of one-hundred cantos. Each cantica follows a pattern of nine phases, plus one for a total of ten: nine circles of hell followed by Lucifer; nine rings of Mount Purgatory followed by the Garden of Eden; and, nine celestial bodies of Paradise followed by the Empyrean essence of God. Widely considered to be the preeminent work in Italian literature, this masterpiece helped establish the Tuscan dialect as standard Italian.

The Vision: Or Hell, Purgatory and Paradise (Classic Reprint)

First Part of the following Translation, with the Text of the Original. Since that period, two impressions of the whole of the Divina Commedia, in I talian, have made their appearance in this country. It is not necessary that I should add a third :and I am induced to hope that the Poem, even in the present version of it, may not be without interest for the mere English reader. The Translation of the Second and Third Parts, The Purgatory and The Paradise, was begun long before the First, and as early as the year 1797 ;but, owing to many interruptions, not concluded till the summer before last. On a retrospect of the time and exertions that have been thus employed, I do not regard those hours as the least happy of my life, during which (to use the eloquent language of Mr. Coleridge) my individual recollections have been suspended, and lulled to sleep amid the music of nobler thoughts; nor that study misapplied, which has familiarized me with one of the sublimest efforts of the human invention.

The Divine Comedy INFERNO

Dante Alighieri, or simply Dante (May 14/June 13, 1265 – September 13/14, 1321), was an Italian poet from Florence. His central work, the Commedia (Divine Comedy) , is considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature. In Italian he is known as “the Supreme Poet” (il Sommo Poeta). Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio are also known as “the three fountains” or “the three crowns”. Dante is also called “the Father of the Italian language”. The first biography written on him was by his contemporary Giovanni Villani (1276 – />1348). This edition is illustrated by Paul Gustave Dorè.

The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri The Inferno

Dante's Inferno A Vision From Hell

Dante's Inferno by Dante Alighieri. The first part of Dante's Divine Comedy (translated by Henry Francis Cary), the "Inferno" (or "Hell") begins on the night before Good Friday in the year 1300, "halfway along our life's path". Dante is thirty-five years old, half of the biblical life expectancy of 70, lost in a dark wood, assailed by beasts he cannot evade, and unable to find the straight way to salvation. Conscious that he is ruining himself and that he is falling into a deep place where the sun is silent, Dante is at last rescued by Virgil, and the two of them begin their journey to the underworld. Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice.
