'Abandon hope all ye who enter here.' Dante, our young, naive hero, has woken from a deep sleep to find himself in a cold, dark wood. Before he can begin to work out where he is, his path is blocked by a leopard, a lion and a she-wolf. Things get worse from here, and our pilgrim finds himself on a journey through the very depths of Hell. Why is he here, and will he ever make it out alive? During his journey, Dante meets the worst sinners imaginable and witnesses how God punishes them. Although they writhe and wail in tortured agony, he must remain strong, for he has to make it through or he may find himself lost in this dismal place forever. Who will Dante meet on his journey, and what will he learn?Real Reads are accessible texts designed to support the literacy development of primary and lower secondary age children while introducing them to the riches of our international literary heritage. Each book is a retelling of a work of great literature from one of the world's greatest cultures, fitted into a 64-page book, making classic stories, dramas and histories available to intelligent young readers as a bridge to the full texts, to language students wanting access to other cultures, and to adult readers who are unlikely ever to read the original versions.
