As many may know, Dante Alighieri was a man of great literary prowess, but was given drive by his single obsession to a small girl by the name of Beatrice. She rings true in this work, as the guiding angel, bringing Dante through the depths of hell, the wasteland of Purgatory, and finally, the glory of heaven.
His has been one of the most enduring works on the human spirit, and the concept of god as seen through Christianity. Full of pun and metaphor, this is rich in language, and ready to please.
Some people start their studies of Epic Poetry with Milton's "Paradise lost," but Dante is far superior to Milton, but Milton is in good company as his second. If you have read the original in Italian, you will find that this is about as close of a translation as you can get. Please enjoy this.
