About the book:

Contains 19 original pen and wash drawings by Barry Moser, along with an introduction and commentary by Allen Mandelbaum.

Since 1805, when the complete text of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy was first translated in English, there have been scores of English translations of this masterpiece of world literature. For many readers. Allen Mandelbaum's translation represents a pinnacle both of devotion to Dante's work and of the translator's art. Henri Peyre of Yale University called the translation, "A marvel of fidelity to the original, of sobriety, and, truly, of inspired poetry." James Merrill, writing in The New Republic, called it "lucid and strong ... It joins a very small company of renderings that stand both on their own as English poetry and to the Comedy as disciples round a master grow, thanks to their attention, ever more complex and less obscure."
