About this title:


Robert Pinsky's acclaimed translation of "The Inferno" was awarded the "Los Angeles Times" Book Prize for Poetry and the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award given by the Academy of American Poets. As Edward Hirsch wrote in "The New Yorker", "Robert Pinsky's translation is fast-paced, idiomatic, and accurate. . . It maintains the original's episodic and narrative velocity. . . . Pinsky succeeds in creating a supple American equivalent for Dante's vernacular music where many others have failed". April 1998 Publication date. (Drama/Poetry)

Product Description: With the poet Virgil as his guide, Dante travels through the nine circles of Hell, listening to voices of the condemned. Poet, essayist, and translator Robert Pinsky has captured the intensity and passion of The Inferno in an unsurpassed contemporary translation. Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. 2 cassettes.
