        Dante Alighieri, or simply Dante May 14 June 13 1265 September 13 14, 1321 , is one of the greatest poets in the Italian language with the comic story teller Boccaccio and the poet Petrarch, he forms the classic trio of Italian authors Dante Alighieri was born in the city state Florence in 1265 He first saw the woman, or rather the child, who was to become the poetic love of his life when he was almost nine years old and she was some months younger In fact, Beatrice married another man, Simone di Bardi, and died when Dante was 25, so their relationship existed almost entirely in Dante s imagination, but she nonetheless plays an extremely important role in his poetry Dante attributed all the heavenly virtues to her soul and imagined, in his masterpiece The Divine Comedy, that she was his guardian angel who alternately berated and encouraged him on his search for salvation.Politics as well as love deeply influenced Dante s literary and emotional life Renaissance Florence was a thriving, but not a peaceful city different opposing factions continually struggled for dominance there The Guelfs and the Ghibellines were the two major factions, and in fact that division was important in all of Italy and other countries as well The Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor were political rivals for much of this time period, and in general the Guelfs were in favor of the Pope, while the Ghibellines supported Imperial power By 1289 in the battle of Campaldino the Ghibellines largely disappeared from Florence Peace, however, did not insue Instead, the Guelf party divided between the Whites and the Blacks Dante was a White Guelf The Whites were opposed to Papal power than the Blacks, and tended to favor the emperor, so in fact the preoccupations of the White Guelfs were much like those of the defeated Ghibellines In this divisive atmosphere Dante rose to a position of leadership in 1302, while he was in Rome on a diplomatic mission to the Pope, the Blacks in Florence seized power with the help of the French and pro Pope Charles of Valois The Blacks exiled Dante, confiscating his goods and condemning him to be burned if he should return to Florence.Dante never returned to Florence He wandered from city to city, depending on noble patrons there Between 1302 and 1304 some attempts were made by the exiled Whites to retrieve their position in Florence, but none of these succeeded and Dante contented himself with hoping for the appearance of a new powerful Holy Roman Emperor who would unite the country and banish strife Henry VII was elected Emperor in 1308, and indeed laid seige to Florence in 1312, but was defeated, and he died a year later, destroying Dante s hopes Dante passed from court to court, writing passionate political and moral epistles and finishing his Divine Comedy, which contains the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso He finally died in Ravenna in 1321.


    1. I just want to start off by saying that "Through me you enter into the City of Woes" would make an EXCELLENT tramp stamp. Jump on it!Being that I am an atheist living in the "Bible Belt," I was certain that reading this would lead to some sort of tirade, which can at times feel about as good as vomiting up a sour stomach oryou know.g other stuff like shit that ladies don't do. However, I was from the outset hypnotized by Dante's très Baudelaire-esque-grotesque imagery and overall style. For su [...]

    2. Dante’s Inferno - the first book I was assigned to read in my high school World Literature class. Back then I couldn’t get over how much the emotion of fear set the tone as I read each page. I recently revisited this classic. Rather than a more conventional review – after all, there really is nothing I can add as a way of critical commentary –- as a tribute to the great poet, I would like to share the below microfiction I wrote a number of years ago: JOYRIDE One balmy July evening at a s [...]

    3. One of the great classics that everyone should attempt reading once. For Walking Dead fans, had there been no Dante, there could never have been a Kirkman. There is incredible violence and suffering (it is Hell after all), but the relationship between Virgil and Dante is a beautiful one that evolves as their descend lower and lower.I read both the John Ciardi translation in verse (rhyming for the first and third lines in each stanza trying to keep to Dante's 11-syllable structure) and John M Sin [...]

    4. Since it's Good Friday, and thus exactly 717 years since Dante's pilgrim descended into the underworld, I thought it would be an auspicious moment to tell people about the project I've been pursuing together with Dr Sabina Sestigiani, an Italian lecturer at Swinburne University in Melbourne. Dante's poem is celebrated as one of the treasures of world literature - but it is not very accessible, being written in archaic Italian. Although there are translations, and even these are wonderful, a tran [...]

    5. The other day, in the comment thread to her review of The Aeneid, Meredith called The Divine Comedy "lame": specifically, she objected to the fact that Dante put all the people he didn't like in Hell. Well, Meredith, you're perfectly welcome to your opinions - but I'm half Italian, and I've been politely informed that if I don't respond in some way I'm likely to wake up some morning and find a horse's head lying next to me. So here goes.I actually have two separate defenses. First, let's conside [...]

    6. Inferno (La Divina Commedia #1) = The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri: Volume 1: Inferno, Dante AlighieriThe Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia) is a long narrative poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed in 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work in Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world-view as it had dev [...]

    7. A fantastic representation of Dante's Inferno - Nine Circles of Hell as divined by divine Lego artist, Mahai Marius Mihu. This is as close as I hope to get to understanding the Nine Circles according to Dante Alighieri. i. LIMBO - A place of monotony, here the souls are punished to wander in restless existence while they moan helplessly in echoes between the ruins of a templeii. LUST - Surrounded by erotic representations, those overcome by lust are forced to watch and experience disgusting thin [...]

    8. An excellent translation--even better than John Ciardi. Like Ciardi, Pinsky is a real poet and makes Dante the poet come alive. His verse has muscularity and force, and his decision to use half-rhyme is an excellent one, since it allows us to attend to the narrative undistracted.

    9. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Inferno, the first of three books in the "Divine Comedy" series, written around 1320 by Dante Alighieri. A few pieces of background information for those who many not know, before I get into a mini-review. Inferno, which means "Hell" was one of three books Dante wrote in the 14th century, essentially about the three spaces people occupy after death: Hell (Inferno), Purgatory and Heaven (Paradiso). I've only read Inferno, so I'm not able to discuss much on the other [...]

    10. I DID IT. I FINISHED IT. BLESS.This is such an interesting book, though definitely very hard to get through. I think if I was able to read it in Italian it would be a little easier as it would actually be read like Dante intended, but it's still really cool to see all the concepts! This is such an influential piece of literature and is referenced SO MUCH in culture that it is really cool to have a basis for it. I think I may reread this in a different rhyming translation next time to see what th [...]

    11. (2016: review to 9780141195872 cover - hardback, red devils cover art:)(I didn't read the main text of this one, but I think I will read the English half at some point.)This one has chronology, introduction, map of Italy, plan of Hell plus commentaries and notes at the end. The main text itself is shown with Italian text on the left side, English on the right side. Commentaries include many comments on the linguistic details that I don't remember the paperback Penguin version having. There is al [...]

    12. Before I start talking about the book proper, I have a confession to make: I wasn't sure I really wanted to read philosophical poetry written seven centuries ago. I had doubts about style, quality of translation and my own lack of literary background in decyphering the numerous Christian and mythological references, not to mention political and cultural trivia from Dante's Florence. Thanks to my friends, I took the plunge and I can report back that it was well worth the effort. Even better, it [...]

    13. Maybe Dante was referring to the levels of materialism. The more one has the more one wants, spiraling downwards, deeper and deeper until the matter consumes. So dense and dark with matter and at absolute evil, Hell, where Satan resides.🐯👍

    14. El Infierno tan temidoEse que transitaron Hércules en sus desafiantes trabajos, aquel al que descendió Eneas en el capítulo VI de la "Eneida", ese pavoroso y horrendo lugar que describe con impactante realismo en su sermón el padre Arnall en el libro "Retrato del artista adolescente", de James Joyce al que considero de una perfección casi cercana a la de Dante Alighieri, o ese otro infierno urbano en el que camina Adán Buenosayres durante la novela homónima y que Leopoldo Marechal narra c [...]

    15. About TranslationIt took me a while to decide on the translation to use. After a few days of research and asking around, I shortlisted Musa and Hollander. Went with Hollander since it seemed better organized. Turned out to be a good choice.The translation is fluid and easy on the ear. The Italian version is also available when you want to just read the Italian purely for the sound of verse. I am no judge of the fidelity of the various translations, but this was an easy read and that was good. Th [...]

    16. I realize that I need to edit one particular part, but this review means a lot to me and I would like for it to stay the way it was written, regardless of the revalations and events that took place later.Beautifully written and emotionally draining. However, this isn't simply a tale of terror. It is a philosophical and, I suppose, historical work as well. (I learned interesting historical facts). Who among us are sinners? Who are the righteous ones? Are people and deeds simply right or wrong, go [...]

    17. استغربت حين رأيت على غلاف الكتاب أنه ترجمة د.سامي الدروبي، وما أعرفه أنه لم يترجمها، ولم تخرج ترجمته خارج الأدب الروسي لكن بعد أن قرأت مقدمة المترجم وجدت أن التوقيع عام 2002، ضحكت كثيرًا على كونهم لصوص أغبياء، فسامي الدروبي متوفى في أواخر السبعينات. وعندما وجدت أن الترجمة جيدة [...]

    21. uscimmo a riveder le stelle (εβγήκαμε να ξαναδούμε τ' άστρα)Έτσι τελειώνει η Κόλαση, με τον Δάντη και τον οδηγό και δάσκαλό του Βιργίλιο να τελειώνουν το ταξίδι τους βγαίνοντας από τον αναποδογυρισμένο κώνο της Κολάσεως στο νότιο ημισφαίριο της Γης. Μου είναι πολύ δύσκολο να μιλήσω για [...]

    22. Dante'nin Homeros, Ovidius ve Vergilius gibi yazarların mirasını kusursuz bir şekilde devam ettirdiği "Divine Comedy / İlahi Komedya", yazarın şair olarak tam anlamıyla şov yaptığı bir başyapıt niteliğinde. Zaten yazara yolculuğunda Vergilius'un eşlik etmesi başlı başına referans. Eserin ilk bölümü "Inferno / Cehennem" ile kusursuz bir politik alegoriya imza atan Dante, okuyucuyu sadece Cehennem'in dokuz katına yaptığı yolculuğa ortak etmekle kalmıyor aynı zamanda [...]

    23. The Inferno or Dante Alighieri need little introduction. Most people are familiar with the Divine Comedy regardless of their religion or lack of one. The Divine Comedy is one man's journey with his guide, through Hell and Purgatory, Virgil. Beatrice is his guide in heaven. The Inferno is the journey through the nine layers of hell and, to many, the most interesting of the three journies. Purgatory is a boring place by design and Heaven is well, heaven.I always felt The Inferno contained the best [...]

    24. 4 Reasons to Read Dante's Inferno1. To finally figure out the difference between the Guelphs and the Ghibellines. Dante was a Guelph.2. To discover why Constantine made his famous donation.3. To learn some new and ingenious ways to torture your enemies. Dante is very imaginative in this regard.4. To find out what happened to Potiphar's wife, Mohammed, Ulysses, Atilla the Hun, Cleopatra, and Helen of Troy. We meet them all in The Inferno.I recommend Dorothy Sayers' translation because of the exce [...]

    25. في البداية لا يمكن انكار ان الترجمه سلبت الكثير من هذه الملحمه الشعريه لكن انصح بترجمه كاظم جهاد فهي الافضل وتحتوي على الاجزاء الثلاثه , بمجلد واحد تعكس هذه اللوحه الرائعه اضطرابات الوضع السياسي والديني في تلك الفتره , وسيطرة الكنيسه وفسادها انذاك لذا نرى دانتي يترنح بين الش [...]

    26. I really liked this book because it was just so interesting to learn all the different levels of hell, whose in each, and what the punishment is for every sin.Here’s all the levels:Here is a good map of all the people there:1st Circle of Hell: LimboSecond Circle of Hell: LustThird Circle of Hell: GluttonyFourth Circle of Hell: GreedFifth Circle of Hell: WrathSixth Circle of Hell: HeresySeventh Circle of Hell: ViolenceEight Circle of Hell: FraudNinth Circle of Hell: TreacheryWell I’m not sinn [...]

    27. I'm not sure where the copy of the book came from. The copyright is one year before I was born, but I don't remember picking it up in a used book store. But I guess that's neither here nor there.I wish I could honestly check off 5 stars and say that my eyes were opened. That I really felt transformed by having read this classic of literature and that I will make it point to re-read it every year on the anniversary of my having discovered the error of my ways in not reading it at age 5.But I can' [...]

    28. I understand there is nothing new I can say about this classic. What I can do is offer my experience of reading Dante’s opus, to hope that by writing the review much more will be revealed to me of my reading than I know here at the start. I imagine I will offer much speculation which has probably been speculated upon for eons. But for me speculation is at the heart of reading and of writing. There is no Virgil to guide me-us. On our own let’s step into The Inferno. Homage is due for this epi [...]

    29. Inferno is part one of the Divine Comedy Series where Dante Alighieri puts across his version of Hell, Purgatory and Heaven of course based on the Christian perception along with the addition of Greek Mythology.Dante is lead on by his dear friend Virgilius through the Inferno and Purgatory, further Beatrice comes forward to lead him through the Paradise . Dante has divided the hell in 9 circles with further subdivisions and all the sinners namely Heretics, Gluttonous, violent ones, Flatterers an [...]
