The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy

One of the greatest poems of world literature is the epic poem Commedia (The Divine Comedy) by Dante Alighieri. See more (from a really well written article at Poetry Foundation) and http://www.worldofdante.org/maps_main.html I was AMAZED by the quality of the UNABRIDGED version of Dante's work from Naxos AudioBooks read by Heathcote WilliamsThe Inferno PurgatoryParadise. Also: Get the INFERNO PDF HERE PURGATORY  PDF and HEAVEN PDF HERE (no purchase needed for the PDF downloads). Note: You may also find many free versions of this work being read - but nothing I have found online comes close to the quality of the Naxo collection.
Naturally the best possible reading might by your own! See: The Divine Comedy - translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
