About this title


The California Lectura Dantis is the long-awaited companion to the three-volume verse translation by Allen Mandelbaum of Dante's <i>Divine Comedy</i>. Mandelbaum's translation, with facing original text and with illustrations by Barry Moser, has been praised by Robert Fagles as &quot;exactly what we have waited for these years, a Dante with clarity, eloquence, terror, and profoundly moving depths,&quot; and by the late James Merrill as &quot;lucid and strong . . . with rich orchestration . . . overall sweep and felicity . . . and countless free, brilliant, utterly Dantesque strokes.&quot; Charles Simic called the work &quot;a miracle. A lesson in the art of translation and a model (an encyclopedia) for poets. The full range and richness of American English is displayed as perhaps never before.&quot;<br /><br />This collection of commentaries on the first part of the <i>Comedy</i> consists of commissioned essays, one for each canto, by a distinguished group of international scholar-critics. Readers of Dante will find this <i>Inferno</i> volume an enlightening and indispensable guide, the kind of lucid commentary that is truly adapted to the general reader as well as the student and scholar.
