books about: inferno
My niece loves it!
I personally have not heard this audio drama, but purchased this for my niece for whom I have given her the book of the same title. When asked about her opinion about this audio drama her reply was "awesome". I hope that helped :D
The Divine Comedy (The Inferno, The Purgatorio, and The Paradiso)
Good so far...
Dante's just made his way to the sixth circle of Hell. Proved to be an interesting story so far.

A Laid Back Stroll Through Hell
I don't know how else to put it, but this book is a relaxing stroll through hell. I found myself relaxed, happy, and engaged, reading this book. How is that possible? How? I'm taken on a journey through hell. How can I be enjoying myself so much? I don't know, but I did. Did hell sound horrid? Sure did. There were some possibilities I never thought of. This book is very creative, fun ...

THE DIVINE COMEDY OF DANTE ALIGHIERI (all three books)
The Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia), written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321, is widely considered the central epic poem of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the Christian afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church. It helped establish the Tuscan dialect in which it ...
The Divine Comedy: Volume 1: Inferno (Penguin Classics)
The best translation of Dante's Commedia
This translation is faithful and modern at the same time. I know Italian and have read the italian poem, but I am also interested in translation, and have found that Musa's work is far superior to others. He explains his criteria in the translator's note: use of modern words, exclusion of rhyme and fidelity to the semantic content. Solutions like the verse: "And, everywhere I looked, the beast ...

Medieval vision of the afterlife
This was required reading for a graduate course in medieval history. Dante Alighieri's (1265-1321) "Devine Comedy" weaved together aspects of biblical and classical Greek literary traditions to produce one of the most important works of not only medieval literature, but also one of the great literary works of Western civilization. The full impact of this 14,000-line poem divided into 100 ...
Red Inferno: 1945: A Novel
CANNOT WAIT FOR CONROY'S NEXT ONE!
I've read every one of Robert Conroy's books, and each has been better then its predecessor. Red Inferno was a perfect combination of real historical facts, alternative history, character development, and story line. Some of the other reviewers commented that Conroy was approaching Harry Turtledove in status. I don't agree. I believe Conroy's latest work is BETTER! Though much more prolific in ...
Inferno (Bantam Classics)
Amazing Translation for the Novice
I paid an absolute fortune for this edition while studying in Perugia, Italy (apparently the dollar isn't doing so well these days, hence the price), but I would say it was worth it. My first time reading Dante (recreationally, to boot!), I was entraced by the beautiful language of the translation. In his story, Dante makes several obscure references to unknown historical figures of his age. ...
Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Inferno
Luke is Back in what is Probably the Best LOTF Novel So Far
It seems to be a trend in the Star Wars universe that greatly significant books are followed up by not-so-great books (Star by Star being followed by Dark Journey, for example). I was afraid that would be the case with Inferno, but the opposite ended up being true. With its fast paced plot, tight story, and the comeback of one character in particular, Inferno ended up being the best in the ...
The Divine Comedy - Dante's Inferno
A Classic Tale, Great book!
This is the most important book next to the bible. It is a must read and a wild adventure.
The Inferno of Dante: Bilingual Edition
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Excellent for the Rookie
Perhaps you are reading these reviews because, let us be honest, you are a bit intimidated to read a book of this nature. Written over seven centuries ago, many, perhaps even most, of the references are today obscure. Yes, the scholars can read Dante, but what of you, who just wants something deeper, who recognizes that you should fill your head with something a bit more permanent than the ...
The Divine Comedy: Volume 1: Inferno
Penguin Classics Hardcover
CHARLES SINGLETON's translation of Divine Comedy
I capitalize CHARLES SINGLETON because amazon.com pile their customer reviews into one long list, admitting no differences between translations. SINGLETON's very literal prose best serves the reader who would read the original Italian, and clarify his reading by referring to the facing English translation. You needn't have studied Italian for this, though some skill in another Romance ...
The best translation of The Inferno
I've read three translations of the Inferno, and this one is by far the best. It's very accurate to the original text but also very readable. I found that as well as flowing better than the other translations, this one is also the most interesting. As well as being the best translation, I also think it has the best notes. The notes and chapter outlines are helpful without being overbearing, ...
Dante's Inferno: Prima Official Game Guide (Prima Official Game Guides)
Like the others have stated, this guide has everything you need to get through the game. It has little icons to show you where the relics and silver coins are found so you don't have to dig through the entire guide page by page, and if you're missing a relic, they're listed in alpha order so you can find them easier. It lists all of the achievements and where you can easily earn them, and it has ...
Inferno (Modern Library Classics)
Excellent translation of an excellent poem
Anthony Esolen's [relatively] new translation of Dante's Divine Comedy is my personal favorite for leisure reading. Here he captures the high drama, rage, fear, and pathos of Dante's poem better than any other translator I've read (and I've read many). I had already read Inferno umpteen times when I bought Esolen's translation, and it was like reading it for the first time again. I was almost ...

Great Fantasy Novel Based around The Inferno
What a great find! Devil's Lair is loosely based on Dante's "The Inferno" and follows the quest of a medieval knight to retrieve the holy grail from the devil. The knight is joined by a cast of historical and literary figures on his quest while Europe is facing the black death. Interesting fantasy novel set in a well described world. Do not pass this up if you like The Divine Comedy or a solid ...
The Divine Comedy: Inferno; Purgatorio; Paradiso (Everyman's Library)
Dante as faithfully translated... the best available!
Dante is part of my "Life Curriculum," books that I read and reread throughout my years, inorder to establish a good basis for thinking and believing. They are supposed to help me live a "good" life, a moral and faithful life. This translation by Mendelbaum is exceptional. It adheres to the poetic spirit of the epic, as well as the intended meaning. In this edition, the notes at the back of the ...
