Editorial Reviews

Review

“A beautiful translation of the astonishing fourteenth-century poem. . . . The best on the market. . . . If you haven't read the Divine Comedy now is the time.”
The New Yorker

Paradiso . . . contains some of the most exhilarating poetry ever written. . . . Robert Hollander is one of the pre-eminent Dante scholars of our time.”
The New York Times

“For our time and for an incalculable future the Hollander translation of
The Divine Comedy will be the one used by serious readers. . . . Splendid as this new translation is, the endlessly valuable notes are what make this edition supplant all others.”
National Review

“The Hollanders' version is supple and clear, a triumph.”
The Los Angeles Times

“Very likely the most enduring, both as a literary achievement and for its commentaries.”
Atlantic Montly

Dante Alighieri was born in 1265 in Florence. His family, of minor nobility, was not wealthy nor especially distinguished; his mother died when he was a child, his father before 1283. At about the age of 20 he married Gemma Donati, by whom he had three children. Little is known of Dante's formal education-it is likely to have included study with the Dominicans, the Augustinians, and the Franciscans in Florence, and at the university in Bologna. In 1295 he entered Florentine politics and in the summer of 1300 he became one of the six governing Priors of Florence. In 1301, the political situation forced Dante and his party into exile. For the rest of his life he wandered through Italy, perhaps studied at Paris, while depending for refuge on the generosity of various nobles. He continued to write and at some point late in life he took asylum in Ravenna where he completed the Divine Commedia and died, much honoured, in 1321.
