    Renowned poet and critic Clive James presents the crowning achievement of his career: a monumental translation into English verse of Dante’s The Divine Comedy. The Divine Comedy is the precursor of modern literature, and this translation - decades in the making - gives us the entire epic as a single, coherent and compulsively listenable lyric poem. Written in the early 14th century and completed in 1321, the year of Dante’s death, The Divine Comedy is perhaps the greatest work of epic poetry ever composed.

    Dante Alighieri's poetic masterpiece is a moving human drama, an unforgettable visionary journey through the infinite torment of Hell, up the arduous slopes of Purgatory, and on to the glorious realm of Paradise-the sphere of universal harmony and eternal salvation. One of the greatest works in literature, Dantes story-poem is an allegory that represents mankind as it exposes itself, by its merits or demerits, to the rewards or the punishments of justice.

    The Inferno is the first part of The Divine Comedy, Dante’s epic poem describing man's progress from hell to paradise. In it, the author is lost in dark woods, threatened by wild beasts and unable to find the right path to salvation. Notable for its nine circles of hell, the poem vividly illustrates the poetic justice of punishments faced by earthly sinners. The Inferno is perhaps the most popular of the three books of The Divine Comedy, which is widely considered the preeminent work in Italian literature.

    "Abandon all hope you who enter here." ( "Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch’intrate.") Dante’s Hell is one of the most remarkable visions in Western literature. An allegory for his and future ages, it is, at the same time, an account of terrifying realism. Passing under a lintel emblazoned with these frightening words, the poet is led down into the depths by Virgil and shown those doomed to suffer eternal torment for vices exhibited and sins committed on earth.

    Dante Gebel, el aclamado autor de El amor en los tiempos del Facebook vuelve con una antología acerca de la vida, la muerte, la niñez y los años perdidos.

    «Para algunos de ustedes la palabra adiós es el desafío de su vida. Pasar por esto es pasar por tiempos de furiosa soledad, de pena que drena la fortaleza. Duermes solo en una cama para dos. Te mueves por tu casa en medio de un aplastante silencio. Te sorprendes pronunciando su nom¬bre o tratando de tomarle la mano, o buscándolo en la cama durante la noche. La separación ha agotado tu espíritu. Te sientes aislado como si estuvieras en cuarentena. El resto del mundo sigue adelante; tú anhelas hacer lo mismo. Pero no pue¬des; no puedes decir adiós…»

    Un libro que ofrece una nueva perspectiva de esas experiencias trascendentales de la vida que se graban en el alma.

    "Delle tre cantiche, senza dubbio la più bella," ci dice Sermonti del Purgatorio, e aggiunge: "come ognuna delle altre." Qui Dante conferisce sostanza, ubicazione e regime al nebuloso regno transitorio dell'oltretomba; promette un canto verticale, che dalla voragine dell'inferno risalirà vertiginosamente i costoni del monte dell'espiazione, sulla cui cima risplende il paradiso terreste.

    Nell'estate del 1940, un ragazzo di undici anni ascoltò il padre che leggeva e spiegava ai fratelli maggiori l'Inferno di Dante; le due estati seguenti toccò a Purgatorio e Paradiso. Proprio quel ragazzo, che all'epoca capiva meglio il concerto che facevano le cicale che non le terzine del poeta, mezzo secolo più tardi avrebbe letto e spiegato Dante ai microfoni della radio e in più di cinquecento letture pubbliche.

    "Abandon hope all ye who enter here." Dante, our young, naive hero, has woken from a deep sleep to find himself in a cold, dark wood. Before he can begin to work out where he is, his path is blocked by a leopard, a lion, and a she-wolf. Things get worse from there, and our pilgrim finds himself on a journey through the very depths of hell. Why is he there, and will he ever make it out alive?
