Abstract:

Translator Allen Mandelbaum brings to contemporary readers the first and most famous part of Dante's Divine Comedy: the poet's classic journey through the underworld. Here is Dante at his ribald, shocking best as he describes in vivid detail his harrowing descent to the very bottom of Hell. Filled with politics and philosophy, humor and horror, the Inferno is an epic poem at once universal and personal. For as we're led to the last circle of the Inferno, we recognize the very worst in human nature -- and the ever-abiding potential for redemption.
