About this title
This beautifully presented edition is illustrated with astonishing artworks, from Hieronymus Bosch’s depictions of a surreal, hellish landscape and other Renaissance visions of the Last Judgement, to Gustave Doré’s intricate engravings of the pilgrim’s spiritual travails.
This is a stunning edition of an enduring classic. The fearsome journey recounted in Inferno is told by a pilgrim who meanders through the increasingly macabre landscape of Hell. He meets and often recognizes the various inhabitants of the hellish gironi (circles) and their strangely befitting punishments.
Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) was a poet and politician. Born into a noble Florentine family in a city torn apart by rival clans, Dante became embroiled in this sectarianism and was banished from the city in 1302. He wrote The Divine Comedy while in exile, and he died in Ravenna in 1321. The translation used is that of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the American lyric poet.
