    " This is an amazing achievement. I spent so much time and energy researching this book during undergrad. So many hidden meanings, so many codes and metaphors. This translation is superior to anything else I've seen and is well bound. Its nice to have Italian right next to the English. The notes are excellent, not the penguin edition is bad, its you can tell that the Hollanders have done their homework with a passion. I can't wait to read again, but first I think some more thorough reading on the popes first. "

    " I like this book even though it is a little bit difficult for me to read, and sometimes it is very confusing. I like how this book was written in the history but still giving out life lessons to modern day. The most obvious life lesson in this book is people need to take their own responsibilities for their actions. In each circle in the hell, the souls are taking their responsibilities after life in the hell for their actions on the earth, which each of the punishments are corresponding to their actions. I believe that there will be punishments for the people who did something bad, maybe it is a long-term effect, or maybe it is a short-term effect, just overall, something will happen later in their lives that will punish them of what they had done before.

    " Dusting off my literature shelves. How could I have the margins filled with notes and barely remember Dante's work except for the 9 circles of hell and the quotation: "Abandon hope all ye who enter here"? Certainly was time to revisit "The Divine Comedy." Milton refresher next... "
