Description
The first and most famous of the three canticles in Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, Inferno describes Dante's descent into Hell with Virgil as his guide. Through nine increasingly torturous circles of damnation, Dante encounters the doomed souls of the pagan Aeneas, the liar Odysseus, the suicidal Cleopatra, and his own political enemies, before meeting Satan himself and learning the true tragedy of sin. Dante scholar Robin Kirkpatrick's translation—"likely to be the best modern version," according to Royal Society of Literature Fellow Bernard O'Donoghue—captures this iconic work's originality and force. This edition also includes a series of graphical maps.

"Kirkpatrick brings a more nuanced sense of the Italian and a more mediated appreciation of the poem's construction than nearly all of his competitors."—Times (London)

"Although I studied Dante's Inferno in high school, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world."—Dan Brown
