About this Item

700 pages. New Three Volume Hardcover set in a slip case. LITERATURE. Dante's epic poem The Divine Comedy is considered by many to be the most influential piece of Italian literature ever written. This new edition of Dante's great work, limited to 500 copies, brings together for the first time the three volumes of the Hollander translation, considered the best modern translation, with the art of internationally recognized illustrator Monika Beisner. The set begins with an introduction by Carlo Carena and a foreword by Academy Award winning actor Roberto Benigni, known for his lectures and dramatic recitations of Dante's poem. The work ends with an appreciation by artist Marina Warner entitled "Monika Beisner: Illuminating Stories." Beisner has created 100 detailed paintings of the work for this publication, making her the first woman credited with illustrating the entire work. Warner writes, "The hundred miniatures took her seven years to complete and the achievement is dazzling. The present volume reproduces her work full-size, É with no strokes or drawing visible, but a pure glow of dense color, applied with brushes so small they consist of a half-dozen sable hairs.É Monika Beisner has been scrupulously loyal to Dante's text, rendering gesture and position as described in the poem as well as its unsurpassed precision of spatial, geographical and temporal coordinates." Included in this set are all three volumes - Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso - which are bound in red, green and blue cloth, respectively and housed in an attractive slipcase. (Key Words: The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri, Robert Hollander, Jean Hollander, Moniker Beisner, Limited Editions, Carlo Carena, Roberto Benigni, Italian Literature, Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso).(Key Words: ).
