Overview -
The epic grandeur of Dante's masterpiece has inspired readers for 700 years, and has entered the human imagination.

Featuring the original Italian text opposite the translation, this edition also offers an extensive and accessible introduction and generous commentaries that draw on centuries of scholarship as well as Robert Hollander's own decades of teaching and research.
