Publisher's Description:


One of the greatest Catholic poets every born, Dante Alighieri deeply moves the soul as the student reads this beautiful masterpiece of verse which Alighieri wrote in the early 1300’s, and called "The Divine Comedy." The reader sees Dante himself as the main character, guided by his hero, Virgil, through the tremendous and piteous pains of hell as well as the hope-filled pains of purgatory. Virgil is however, not worthy to lead Dante through Paradise, and thus Beatrice (the woman that Dante dearly loves) as well as St. Bernard guide Dante through the glory, peace, and beauty of heaven. Recommended for grades 10 – 12.

Dante somewhat shocked the literary world by writing this in common Italian, and thus this is a classic English translation of the work. This book also includes other works by Dante, including "The New Life," and other selected poems, prose, and letters accompanied by biographical and introductory sections.
