    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - without hesitation.


    What other book might you compare La Divina Commedia [The Divine Comedy] to and why?

    The Divine Comedy is fascinating for many reasons. Linguistically it is an early form of Italian and very close to Latin. This great epic, in fact, was strongly influenced by the great Latin poet Virgil and his Roman epic, the Aeneid.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Inferno, with Virgil as Dante's guide, is impressive and had a significant influence on Christian and European culture.


    Any additional comments?

    Silvia Cecchini's narration is the clearest and most pleasant of all the many readings of this musical masterpiece.

    L’Eneide non è un semplice poema epico ma il quadro di un passaggio fra il vecchio mondo pagano e il nuovo mondo cristiano (nondimentichiamoci infatti che Virgilio è stato la guida di Dante nella Commedia). Solo un poeta dalla ricca vita interiore come Virgilio, e dal potere evocativo dei suoi versi poteva farsi l’interprete di questo passaggio.

    If you could sum up Eneide [Aeneid] in three words, what would they be?

    The Aeneid is one of the greatest epic poems of all time.


    What other book might you compare Eneide [Aeneid] to and why?

    The Aeneid is equal to Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and Dante's Divine Comedy.


    Any additional comments?

    Silvia Cecchini is an experienced, talented, and clear narrator of Italian literature. Each new work by her is an important event in the outstanding Italian collection of audible.com.
