    Dramatic, intense, and gripping, The Inferno by Dante is an astonishing masterpiece that no listener can afford to miss. Robert Pinsky, the distinguished American poet, preserves the burning clarity and universal relevance of this 13th century literary masterpiece in a triumphant new translation for our times. Line by line, canto by canto, Pinksy affirms The Inferno as a powerful living classic for today's listeners.

    Joe Pawlowski says: "Classic Vision of Doom in the Afterlife"
    "a classic that begat classics."
    Overall

    First time I read through the entire piece. All that I can say is that it is Amazing the impact this piece of prose has had on our world. I can see so much of it's influence in the works of Poe, Dumas, Rand, even Clarke and Roddenberry. It was a great mental exercise that I will be repeating again in the next couple months.

    I even enjoyed the introduction that set the stage for the piece, as it framed the context of the authors perspective. Which now 700 years removed may have been a bit of a strech.
