Illustrations by Gustave Doré
A groundbreaking bilingual edition of Dantes masterpiece that includes a substantive Introduction, extensive notes, and appendixes that reproduce Dantes key sources and influences.
"Crisp and clear, Esolens version avoids two modern temptations: a slavish literalness to the Italian or a taking of liberties in the attempt to make this greatest of medieval poems esthetically modern. . . . In addition to his scholarly tact, Esolen is simply one of the most vigorous English translators of Dante ever."Crisis magazine
"Esolens new translation follows Dante through all his spectacular range, commanding where he is commanding, wrestling, as he does, with the density and darkness in language and in the soul. This Inferno gives us Dantes vivid drama and his verbal inventiveness. It is living writing." James Richardson, professor of creative writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts, Princeton University
"Opening the book we stand face to face with the poet, and when his voice ceases we may marvel if he has not sung to us in his own Tuscan."William Dean Howells, The Nation

Let me just say it, BEAUTIFUL! To see the Italian verse on the facing page of the English verse has allowed me to see what a lovely language the original was written in. Do not miss out on the introduction. It is soaked in serious Christian thought. Anthony Esolen has certainly won me over, for I am throwing out my other editions of Dante and sticking to this.
