This beautifully presented edition is illustrated with astonishing artworks, from Hieronymus Bosch’s depictions of a surreal, hellish landscape and other Renaissance visions of the Last Judgement, to Gustave Doré’s intricate engravings of the pilgrim’s spiritual travails.

This is a stunning edition of an enduring classic. The fearsome journey recounted in Inferno is told by a pilgrim who meanders through the increasingly macabre landscape of Hell. He meets and often recognizes the various inhabitants of the hellish gironi (circles) and their strangely befitting punishments.

Dante Alighieri (c. 1265-1321) was an Italian poet, writer, and political thinker. After studying at the University of Bologna, he married and had four children. Dante was exiled from his hometown of Florence in 1302 due to his political leanings, finally settling in the city of Ravenna in 1307, when he began writing The Divine Comedy.
