All hell is breaking loose. Electronic Arts' thrilling video game Dante's Inferno has exploded on the scene and this book provides unique insight into its creation. Go back to the source with Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's celebrated translation of Dante's epic poem.

  • Dante drive thru
    From Amazon

    This audio version of the Classic Inferno is only a single disc edition of the book. Even though it is dramatized this does not make up for its brevity. However, if you just want a little taste of Inferno then this might be for you; just a one hour trip through hell. If you want the entire text on audio look elsewhere.

  • Go to Hell.
    From Amazon

    Dante's Inferno is an epic poem written by one of the greatest poets ever. Dante goes through the nine circles of Hell just to save his true love. This is an amazing poem that many should enjoy.

  • The Inferno
    From Amazon

    I first read this book when I was in highschool and it's still one of my favorites books today.

  • Inferno for the a new generation
    From Amazon

    It is nice to have a more recent translation of a classic work. Often classical works are difficult to understand because even though in English, they are written in forms and modes that are "out of fashion" or not easily understandable to younger generations from lack of exposure. This version is easy to read and understand. The poetry is beautiful. I just think this project is exciting and it is so nice to see a compilation of work that includes so many contemporary poets.

  • Excellent Book
    From Amazon

    I found Dante's Inferno to be in excellent shape, a great book, and plan on purchasing volumes II and III.
