About the Author

Born Dante Alighieri in the spring of 1265 in Florence, Italy, he was known familiarly as Dante. His family was noble, but not wealthy, and Dante received the education accorded to gentlemen, studying poetry, philosophy, and theology. His first major work was Il Vita Nuova, The New Life. This brief näytä lisää collection of 31 poems, held together by a narrative sequence, celebrates the virtue and honor of Beatrice, Dante's ideal of beauty and purity. Beatrice was modeled after Bice di Folco Portinari, a beautiful woman Dante had met when he was nine years old and had worshipped from afar in spite of his own arranged marriage to Gemma Donati. Il Vita Nuova has a secure place in literary history: its vernacular language and mix of poetry with prose were new; and it serves as an introduction to Dante's masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, in which Beatrice figures prominently. The Divine Comedy is Dante's vision of the afterlife, broken into a trilogy of the Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise. Dante is given a guided tour of hell and purgatory by Virgil, the pagan Roman poet whom Dante greatly admired and imitated, and of heaven by Beatrice. The Inferno shows the souls who have been condemned to eternal torment, and included here are not only mythical and historical evil-doers, but Dante's enemies. The Purgatory reveals how souls who are not irreversibly sinful learn to be good through a spiritual purification. And The Paradise depicts further development of the just as they approach God. The Divine Comedy has been influential from Dante's day into modern times. The poem has endured not just because of its beauty and significance, but also because of its richness and piety as well as its occasionally humorous and vulgar treatment of the afterlife. In addition to his writing, Dante was active in politics. In 1302, after two years as a priore, or governor of Florence, he was exiled because of his support for the white guelfi, a moderate political party of which he was a member. After extensive travels, he stayed in Ravenna in 1319, completing The Divine Comedy there, until his death in 1321. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Dante Alighieri, (May 14/June 13, 1265 – September 13/14[1], 1321), was a Florentine Italian poet. Like many in the Florence of his day, he became involved in the conflict between the Guelph and Ghibelline factions. He fought in the Battle of Campaldino (1289) and held several political offices over the years. His central work, the Divina Commedia (Divine Comedy, originally called "Comedìa"), is composed of three parts: the Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise. Dante was exiled from the city he loved, and addressed the pain of his loss in his work.

La Divina Comedia es un poema alegórico escrito a la manera teológica de Santo Tomás. Contiene las doctrinas e ideas dispersas y expuestas en varias obras. Las expone y recopila de manera ordenada, bajo un propósito poético, definido y sistemático. Dante emprende en este poema formidable y genial, la mezcla de la vida real con la fantasía, y muestra la lucha entre el ser y el espíritu. Recorre tres lugares: Infierno, Purgatorio y Paraíso. Constan entre sí de cien cantos: el Infierno está dividido en nueve círculos y nueve fosas, el Purgatorio en nueve partes, y el Paraíso, en nueve cielos. Esta obra condena, castiga y glorifica a diferentes personalidades del pasado y presente de su época, según su criterio y opinión sobre los personajes y sus creencias.… (lisätietoja)

I am prone to hesitation in reviewing a classic so low. I realize I am in the minority and I don't want to tick people off. I also freely admit my struggles with some of these classics is solely in my naivety and lack of deeper understanding.

That being said -- this was a chore to read. I had an audible version and a print version, neither read the same. It likely helped to "follow along" as I listened, deciphering the print from the audible. Yet still so tough.

I understand the deep religious tone in the book, I still find it uncomfortable. This idea of hell is disturbing and so ... mainstream religious. On the other hand, what an amazing and ornate and detailed description of Hell. Quite impressive.

I also wish I knew more about the many, many people mentioned in the poem. So many times I just skimmed over who they were and sometimes what they did to get to Hell. I wanted to get it.

If I understand the times and atmosphere of the life of Dante, this was a brave work. I admire that. I do not admire, however, where he put Muslims or Jews and those who were born prior to Christ. Doesn't sit well with me.

Simplesmente sensacional. Toda profundidade de detlahes no banquete servido por Dante, faz com que viajamos na filosifa medieval italiana.

Alegoricamente, o poema representa a ascensão da alma a Deus. Seguindo-se ao Inferno e ao Purgatório, é uma alegoria que conta a viagem de Dante pelo Céu, guiada por Beatriz, que simboliza a teologia. No poema, o Paraíso é retratado como uma série de esferas concêntricas ao redor da Terra, consistindo na Lua, Mercúrio, Vênus, o Sol, Marte, Júpiter, Saturno, as Estrelas Fixas, o Primum Mobile e, finalmente, o Empíreo.
