$39.00
The Divine Comedy, Dante’s masterpiece of poetry, is considered the central epic poem of Italian literature as it played a key role in introducing the Renaissance worldview to the common man. This moving drama is Dante’s spiritual journey in his search for God. He is led through Hell and Purgatory by the Roman poet Virgil, and, finally, through Paradise by Beatrice, his ideal woman. This classic unites Christian and Greco-Roman thought in the power of poetic verse.

Taking two threads of a story that everybody knew and loved, the story of a vision of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise, and the story of the lover who has to brace the Underworld to find his lost lady, Dante combined them into a great allegory of the soul's search for God. The World View Library Edition (Quine) presents the Dante Trilogy (Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise) in a clear, easy to read format. The outside margins contain summary headings, definitions, and other help.
