A cura di Emilio Pasquini e Antonio Quaglio
Sullo sfondo dell’allucinato paesaggio infernale, si sviluppa rigogliosa e fantastica la vita delle ombre dannate, plasticamente scolpite nella malvagità della loro natura dalla prodigiosa inventiva dell’autore e dalla sua potente immaginazione poetica. Nella processione delle figure che animano la galleria delle passioni terrene, spiccano le apparizioni di personaggi umanissimi come Francesca da Rimini, Farinata degli Uberti, Pier delle Vigne, Brunetto Latini, il conte Ugolino, che Dante incontra e interroga, fissandoli di volta in volta nel ritratto oggettivo, nella partecipazione dolente, nella complicità colpevole.

Dante’s Inferno - the first book I was assigned to read in my high school World Literature class. Back then I couldn’t get over how much the emotion of fear set the tone as I read each page. I recently revisited this classic. Rather than a more conventional review – after all, there really is nothin Leggi tutto
I did not expect Dante’s Inferno to be easy, but it was not as hard as I expected it to be. In order to make sure that I gave it my all, over the course of about 40 days I listened to it twice, had a physical copy that I skimmed and referenced, looked at online study guides, and discussed with some o Leggi tutto
The other day, in the comment thread to her review of The Aeneid , Meredith called The Divine Comedy "lame": specifically, she objected to the fact that Dante put all the people he didn't like in Hell. Well, Meredith, you're perfectly welcome to your opinions - but I'm half Italian, and I've been pol Leggi tutto
THIS BOOK IS ABOUT HOW HELL IS GONNA SUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
An excellent translation--even better than John Ciardi. Like Ciardi, Pinsky is a real poet and makes Dante the poet come alive. His verse has muscularity and force, and his decision to use half-rhyme is an excellent one, since it allows us to attend to the narrative undistracted.
A fantastic representation of Dante's Inferno - Nine Circles of Hell as divined by divine Lego artist, Mahai Marius Mihu . This is as close as I hope to get to understanding the Nine Circles according to Dante Alighieri. i. LIMBO - A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restles Leggi tutto
This review and other non-spoilery reviews can be found @The Book Prescription “But the stars that marked our starting fall away. We must go deeper into greater pain, for it is not permitted that we stay.” 🌟 Basically this book is about Dante’s journey in hell, so it must be one hell of a book, right? Leggi tutto
