The Inferno is one of those books that everyone talks about, but very few people seem to have actually read. It’s a classic of the highest order, and after having read it myself, I have to say I agree with that verdict. It is genuinely magnificently written, and I have both Dante and John Ciardi to thank for that. The notes in this edition were extremely helpful, and I truly enjoyed Dante the character’s journey through Hell. I in no way agree with Dante’s vision of Hell and who belongs there, but it was a very interesting story and I really enjoyed reading it.
What I Liked: Spoilers!
What I Didn’t Like:
Overall: I really did like The Inferno, and I would highly recommend it as something for everyone to read at least once! There’s a reason it’s considered a class, and it was incredibly well written and structured beautifully. This particular edition had great notes that made it easy to follow the story!
