author2-role , "Here at last that much suffering reader will find Dante's greatness manifest, and not his greatness only, but his grace, his simplicity, and his affection."-William Dean Howells, The Nation "As a crown to his literary life, Longfellow combines his exquisite scholarship and his poetic skill and experience in the translation of one of the great poems of the world."-Harper's Monthly Enter the unforgettable world of The Inferno and travel with a pair of poets through nightmare landscapes of eternal damnation to the very core of Hell. The first of the three major canticles in La divina commedia (The Divine Comedy), this fourteenth-century allegorical poem begins Dante's imaginary journey from Hell to Purgatory to Paradise. His encounters with historical and mythological creatures--each symbolic of a particular vice or crime--blend vivid and shocking imagery with graceful lyricism in one of the monumental works of world literature. This acclaimed translation was rendered by the beloved nineteenth-century poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A skilled linguist who taught modern languages at Harvard, Longfellow was among the first to make Dante's visionary poem accessible to American readers., (OCoLC)232870863, 0486112616 (electronic bk.), 1 online resource, 1084818, 0393323870, 11602102Midwest Tape, LLC, 11783958Midwest Tape, LLC, 11837386Midwest Tape, LLC, 11842791Midwest Tape, LLC, 1607109972 (electronic bk.), 1627887423 (electronic bk.), 1628727489 (electronic bk.), 33021028824354apoetPOETRY DANTEng1694584a, 33021028824388apoetPOETRY DANTEpm1694587a, 33021028824404apoetPOETRY DANTEth1694589a, 33021029221295apoetPOETRY DANTEng1944531a, 33021029221303apoetPOETRY DANTEwf1944530a, 33021029221311apoetPOETRY DANTEng1944529a, 33021029221329apoetPOETRY DANTEcc1944528a, 33021029221337apoetPOETRY DANTEbr1944527a, 33021029221345apoetPOETRY DANTEwf1944526a, 33021029221352apoetPOETRY DANTEbe1944525a, 416 p. ;21 cm., 850B, 851, 851.1, 851/.1, 9780393323870, 9780486112619 (electronic bk.), 9781607109976 (electronic bk.), 9781627887427 (electronic bk.), 9781628727487 (electronic bk.), Accompanied by facing-page Italian and explanatory notes, a new translation, using modern American English, of the great poetic masterpiece maintains Dante's original triple rhyme scheme., After losing a loved one, "pay attention to the ways in which your relationship continues." So advised Sarah Horowitz in an interview she gave the day before her unexpected death. In A Cracking of the Heart, David Horowitz explores the legacy of his extraordinary daughter's short life, and narrates his quest for a deeper understanding of the child he lost. A remarkable woman and gifted writer, Sarah was afflicted with a birth condition that, while complicating and ultimately shortening her life, never affected her dreams. From an early age, she displayed inspiring courage in facing her own difficulties and boundless compassion for the underserved and overlooked in many communities, from an autistic niece in her own family to uneducated children in Africa. A Cracking of the Heart chronicles the separation of father and daughter through political and familial conflicts, and their slow reunion. Alternately searing and uplifting, it reconciles what could have been with what is, taking the reader through a father's love, frustration, admiration, and grief, to what lies beyond., Alighieri, Dante., BTCTAengBTCTABAKERYDXCPBDXOCLCOOCLCQTnLvILS, Ciardi, John,1916-1986,translator., Cifelli, Edward M.,writer of supplementary textual content., Dante Alighieri,1265-1321,author., Dante Alighieri,1265-1321., Dante Alighieri,1265-1321.Inferno, Dante Alighieri,1265-1321.Inferno., Digital content provided by hoopla., Dover thrift editions, Dover thrift editions., Electronic books., Hell, IG$A, Inferno /Dante Alighieri ; a new verse translation by Michael Palma., Inferno., Italian language materials., Italian literature, Italian poetry, Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth,1807-1882,translator., Lotherington, John., MWT11602102, MWT11783958, MWT11837386, MWT11842791, MacAllister, Archibald T.,1905-1966,writer of introduction., Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :W.W. Norton,2003, c2002., On a divine journey through the depths of Hell, Dante--with his guide, the poet Virgil--witnesses the fate of Earth's sinners. Inferno, a 14th century poem and the first part of Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy, paints an allegorical underworld in which sinners are punished in accordance with their sins. Journey through the darkness and meet famous historical and mythical figures and the fate that has become them, from Homer and Julius Caesar who dwell in Limbo with the unbaptized and the virtuous pagans, to Judas Iscariot and Satan himself, who dwell in the deepest circle of hell for the sin of treachery. Influential, even after seven centuries in print, readers of Inferno will appreciate the plethora of allusions both within and concerning this work, as well as the moral implications the story develops. Now available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series, Inferno is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers. Lexile score: 1120L, One of the world's transcendent literary masterpieces, the Inferno tells the timeless story of Dante's journey through the nine circles of hell, guided by the poet Virgil, when in midlife he strays from his path in a dark wood. In this vivid verse translation into contemporary English, Peter Thornton makes the classic work fresh again for a new generation of readers. Recognizing that the Inferno was, for Dante and his peers, not simply an allegory but the most realistic work of fiction to date, he points out that hell was a lot like Italy of Dante's time. Thornton's translation captures the individuals represented, landscapes, and psychological immediacy of the dialogues as well as Dante's poetic effects. The product of decades of passionate dedication and research, his translation has been hailed by the leading Dante scholars on both sides of the Atlantic as exceptional in its accuracy, spontaneity, and vividness. Those qualities and its detailed notes explaining Dante's world and references make it both accessible for individual readers and perfect for class adoption., POE005030, POETRY / European / General, POETRY DANTE, PQ4315.2.P27 2003, Palma, Michael,1945-, Paradise, Poetry, Medieval., Purgatory, Religious poetry., Reprint.
