Dante's epic-in a stunning new clothbound edition. Describing Dante's descent into Hell with Virgil as a guide, the Inferno depicts a cruel underworld in which desperate figures are condemned to eternal damnation for committing one or more of seven deadly sins. As he descends through nine concentric circles of increasing torture, Dante encounters doomed souls including the pagan Aeneas, the liar Odysseus, the suicide Cleopatra, and his own political enemies, damned for their deceit. Led by leering demons, the poet must journey with Virgil to the heart of Hell-for it is only by encountering Satan that he can truly understand the tragedy of sin.

4.0 The Inferno (Review)
The Inferno is one of those books that everyone talks about, but very few people seem to have actually read. It’s a classic of the highest order, and after having read it myself, I have to say I agree with that verdict. It is genuinely magnificently written, and I have both Dante and John Ciardi to ...

3.0 Pleasant afternoon stroll in the underworld
Dante's lively, conical hell is vivacious, and his story is presented as history, allowing its spiritual and philosophical significance to emerge unforced. It offers a nuanced view of human action, thought, character and judgement, as well as the role of divine justice.All this might seem unappealin...
