The Divine Comedy: Alighieri Inferno Purgatorio Paradiso 1979
Dante Alighieri was born in Florence in 1265, he first saw Beatrice when he was nine and worshipped her from then on with a platonic devotion that transformed his life and inspired one of the most ambitious and influential poems of all time. In this blank verse translation Kenneth Mackenzie has succeeded in forging a style which retains the simplicity and directness of the original, keeping the commentary to a minimum; and John Flaxman’s strange neo-classical designs, rarely reproduced before, add another dimension to the reality of Dante’s vivid universe.
