The Divine Comedy: Inferno; Purgatorio; Paradiso (Everyman's Library)
by Dante Alighieri
Publisher: Everyman's Library
Edition: One-volume - 1995
The Divine Comedy, translated by Allen Mandelbaum, begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity.
