The Divine Comedy Hardback
Edited by Peter Armour
Illustrated by Sandro Botticelli
This edition prints all three parts of Dante's great poem about the journey of the soul - Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso - in the recent English translation by Allen Mandelbaum, with an introduction and explanatory notes on each canto by the noted Dante scholar, Peter Armour.
This is the only reasonably priced hardback edition of one of the world's greatest masterworks and should prove to be the most accessible for students and general readers alike.
It includes Botticelli's glorious and relatively unknown illustrations of The Divine Comedy, drawn in the 1480s.
