    " It's probably unavoidable that some of the poetics are lost in translation... my only gripe -- and this probably holds true for the source text, too -- is that the structure, by contemporary standards, is plodding and predictable: it's one circle of hell after another... straight up and down. or down and up, I suppose. "

    " I was very much into the book until the last hundred pages or so. I thoroughly enjoyed Dante's trip through Purgatory. I got a tad bit bored right around Canto 21 when the subject matter (even though with different people/characters) was the same in successive Cantos. Reading the various forms of punishment was fun. At times however, I wished Virgil would whisk Dante and hurry up and get through Purgatory. A very interesting situation in Canto 24 when the reader must decipher between Dante the traveler and Dante the author. "

    " I guess if you have a good knowledge of the backbiting and rivalry in the court of Florence in the 14th century it might be for you. For me, I thought it was a bit tedious and not worth reading beyond Wikipedia, for we must be missing out a bit on the epic poem in translation. "

    " I thought that this was going to be yet another really boring book that I was assigned to read for its historical and literary value.... but not quite. I listened to it on audiobook and the reader really brought it to life! I actually enjoyed listening to the poem! "

    " Good read if you can persevere through the language "

    " Another high school book - incredibly difficult to get through but I loved the imagery. I was always amazed at how real everything felt. "

    " Weirdly it's all downhill after The Inferno. But that part is hi-LAR-ious. "

    " A little slow at the city of Dis, but levels seven, eight and nine are just too good. "

    " ... and the worst sin of all? ... the sin at the final level of Hell where Dis awaits ... treachery ... betraying those we claim to love ... and a treacherous heart frozen for eternity in ice can never know love or the joy of innocence ... "

    " One of those that you just had to read during college. I read it again after because it was one that I wanted to read. "

    " Vivid descriptions of the immutable law of hell. Quite good. This is my first reading...look forward to reading it again in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xander | 7/7/2010

    " The best part about reading this book is trying to figure out what circle of Hell you're going to. I'll see you in the sixth circle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian Good | 6/13/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacob Tourigny | 4/9/2010

    " This is an interesting book as it outlines what people back then though of hell and what specifically it entailed. While this is an interesting book I would not really suggest it to another student due to the fact of the difficulty involved in reading the book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/19/2009

About the Author
Author Dante Alighieri

Dante Alighieri (1265–1321), one of the greatest poets in the Italian language, was born in Florence and later banished from there for his political activities. His philosophical-political poem La Commedia, later called La Divina Commedia, is considered a masterpiece of world literature.
