This vigorous translation of Dante's "Inferno" preserves the original simple, natural style while capturing the swift movement of the Italian verse.

Mark Musa's blank verse rendition of the poet's journey through the circles of hell re-creates for the modern reader the rich meanings that Dante's poem had for his contemporaries.

Musa's introduction and commentaries on each of the cantos illuminate the text.
