Abandon all hope you who enter here. (Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch'intrate.) Dante's Hell is one of the most remarkable visions in Western literature. An allegory for his and future ages, it is, at the same time, an account of terrifying realism. Passing under a lintel emblazoned with these frightening words, the poet is led down into the depths by Virgil and shown those doomed to suffer eternal torment for vices exhibited and sins committed on earth.

Inferno is the first part of the long journey which continues through redemption to revelation - through Purgatory and Paradise - and, in this translation, prepared especially for the audiobook, his images are as vivid as when the poem was first written in the early years of the 14th century.

    " My version has the original Italian side by side with the English translation. It's amazing to read it in both, though the Italian, of course, sounds more beautiful. I only gave it 4/5 because I haven't made it to Purgatory and Paradise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Armando Arauz | 2/4/2014

    " Studied Inferno for school seminar. This was a challenging book to read and understand with so much symbolism that can be read into it. It was interesting and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tyrell Warner | 2/4/2014

    " Spine chillingly grotesque depictions abound in this book but really, the overt religious message itself somewhat detracts from it- a modern rewriting as a horror book would make it a masterpiece. "
