'This man is one who, from the deepest void in all the universe, has seen thus far' Informed by a profound belief in the dignity and compassion of humanity, and influenced by the turbulent society of thirteenth-century Italy, Dante's Commedia is one of the most extraordinary visions of sin and redemption in literature. A work of boundless invention and vast intellectual synthesis, it broke new ground with the vigour of its language and storytelling. The three parts of the Commedia chart the spiritual and physical journey of Dante- in the Inferno he descends into a freezing Hell with the Roman Virgil as his guide, in Purgatorio he climbs Mount Purgatorio and is reunited with his lost love Beatrice and, finally, in Paradiso, he ascends to heaven and a sphere beyond space and time. This new edition brings together the three volumes of Robin Kirkpatrick's acclaimed translation of the Commedia, with a new introduction discussing the work in the context of Florentine politics, its experimental techniques and later influence, and the figures of Virgil and Beatrice. This edition also includes a chronology, further reading, maps, diagrams and notes on each canto. Translated and edited with an introduction and notes by Robin Kirkpatrick
Industry Reviews
The perfect balance of tightness and colloquialism . . . Likely to be the best modern version of Dante -- Bernard O'Donoghue
Kirkpatrick brings a more nuanced sense of the Italian and a more mediated appreciation of the poem's construction than nearly all of his competitors * The Times *
We gain much from Kirkpatrick's fidelity to syntax and nuance... His introduction...tells you, very readable indeed, pretty much all you need for a heightened appreciation of the work * Guardian *
