Review: Inferno (The Divine Comedy #1)

Procura do Utilizador  - Blair - Goodreads

Exceptional, but better appreciated with secondary material, either during or after reading. I recommend during, as the prose verges on tedious in english translation. In fact, it's best read in annotated version, which I've seen in stores. Ler crítica na íntegra

Very interesting perspective on Dante's part of hell. Contained beautiful syncretism of Pagan philosophies and characters (Greek/Roman) and Christian figures. Ler crítica na íntegra

Gave it four stars despite its obvious genius - because, well, I probably only half-understood it, and found it a bitch to get through. Had a version which lays out the specifics of what each previous ... Ler crítica na íntegra
