The epic poem The Divine Comedy is one of the greatest ever works of western literature. In this epic poem, Dante imagines the afterlife by representing his own travels through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. With Virgil as his guide he travels to the Earthly Paradise. Along with stirring adventures and boundless imagination are Dante’s reflections on spirituality and the nature of faith and reason in the world. This edition is perfectly complemented by William Blake’s haunting illustrations. Together, they bring Dante’s imagination to life for the modern reader.
