The Divine Comedy : Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso
by Dante Alighieri and Robin Kirkpatrick and Robin Kirkpatrick




Overview -
A stunning 3-in-1 edition of one of the great works of Western literature

An epic masterpiece and a foundational work of the Western canon, The Divine Comedy describes Dante's descent into Hell with Virgil as his guide; his ascent of Mount Purgatory and reunion with his dead love, Beatrice; and, finally, his arrival in Heaven. Examining questions of faith, desire, and enlightenment and furnished with semiautobiographical details, Dante's poem is a brilliantly nuanced and moving allegory of human redemption. This acclaimed blank verse translation is published here in a one-volume edition in Penguin Classics' black-spine dress.
