Dante Alighieri; Stanley Lombardo (Translator); Claire E. Honess (Introduction by); Matthew Treherne (Introduction by); Ruth Chester (Notes by)
Purgatorio is a first person narration of Dante's travels through Hell, but at a deeper level it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy. A powerful work of art that has stood the test of time. This is the brilliant Henry Wadsworth Longfellow translation that placed Dante in his proper place in the English speaking world.
