About the book:

In the second volume of his definitive translation of The Divine Comedy, Mark Musa again brings his poetic sensitivity and skill as a translator and annotator to the difficult task of making Dantes masterpiece vital for English-speaking readers.

In Purgatory, Dante deals with the origins of sin as he struggles up the terraces of Mount Purgatory on his arduous journey towards God. In Musas fine idiomatic translation - complete with prose introductions, bibliography and glossary - Dante comes alive as the universal poet - sublime, grim, intellectual, simple, humorous, tender and ecstatic.
