The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )
35 editions published between 1932 and 1959 in English and held by 1,822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In middle age Dante realizes he has strayed from the True Way into the Dark Wood of Error, or Wordliness. When he realizes his loss, he looks up to see the first light of the sun, the symbol of divine illumination, lighting the top of a small hill, the Mount of Joy. It is Easter, the time of resurrection and rebirth. These symbols fill Dante with hope and he sets out immediately to climb to the top of Mount Joy. His way is blocked, however, by the Three Beasts of Worldliness--the Leopard of Malice and Fraud, the Lion of violence and ambition, and the She-Wolf of Incntinence--who will drive him back into the darkness of error. When all seems lost, Virgil, Dante's symbol of human reason, to lead him from error. With the easy way to the Mount of Joy blacked, Dante must travel the more difficult way through Hell and Purgatory before reaching the light of God. To help him, Virgil offers Dante another Guide--Beatrice, the symbol of divine love

13 editions published between 1900 and 2007 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brand was Ibsen's first masterpiece, a poetic drama composed in 1865 and published to tremendous critical and popular acclaim. The unsparing vision of a priest driven by faith to risk and witness the deaths of his wife and child gives Brand its icy ferocity. When he was writing it in Italy, Ibsen declared: 'It is blessedly peaceful out here; no one I know; I read nothing but the Bible ... ' Geoffrey Hill provides a new Preface to this third and revised edition of his great stage version of Brand."--Jacket

Giovanni Boccaccio, the life of Dante (Tratatello in laude di Dante) by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )
11 editions published between 1904 and 2011 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Boccaccio, with his unquenchable interest in the lives of great men, was a fervent admirer of Dante, both in terms of his life and his work. As such, he embarked upon writing this short piece as a vindication of the merits of his illustrious fellow-citizen. Yet far from being simply an account of the misfortunes that befell the great Florentine exile, the resulting Life of Dante also gives precious insight into Boccaccio's own ideas on a wide variety of issues including poetry, literature, women and society." --Book Jacket
The divine comedy Inferno ; Purgatorio ; Paradiso by Dante Alighieri( Recording )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dante's theme is universal. ... The story is an allegory representing the soul's journey from spiritual depths to spiritual heights. As mankind exposes itself, by its merits or demerits, to the rewards or the punishments of justice, it experiences 'Inferno' or hell, 'Purgatorio' or purgatory, and 'Paradiso' or heaven, a vision of a world of beauty, light, and song"--container
