The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri: Volume 3: Paradiso
One of the greatest living Italian-to-English translators, Durling has at last completed his rendition of the third and final volume of Dante’s masterful literary epic, The Divine Comedy. As with the two preceding volumes, Durling’s precise and powerful translation of Paradiso appears
alongside the original Italian text recounting Dante’s journey through heaven with the beautiful Beatrice. The end of each canto contains thorough yet succinct notes by Durling and Ronald Martinez that acquaint the reader with Dante’s medieval world and his reference points. Thus the volume will
appeal to the general reader as well as lovers and students of Italian literature, language, and history. While English-language translations of the Commedia abound, the accuracy and lyrical verve of Durling’s translations have earned him a place as one of the all time greats.
