The Divine Comedy • The Carlyle Wicksteed Translation • Unabridged

10 Apr


How to make available to the contemporary reader all the beauty of thought,

language and imagery of The Divine Comedy has been the primary

consideration of the editors of the Modern Library in issuing this translated

version of Dante’s masterpiece, complete and unabridged. After careful

consideration of all the extant English translations and after consultation with

the foremost university authorities, the Carlyle-Wicksteed rendering was

chosen. It gives the entire scope, substance and spirit of The Divine

Comedy to those numberless readers who cannot cope with the original.
