Short Desription

At the pinnacle of a grand and prolific career, W. S. Merwin has given us a shimmering new verse translation of the central section of Dante''s Divine Comedy -- the Purgatorio.

Led by Virgil, inspired by his love for Beatrice, Dante makes the arduous journey up the Mountain of Purgatory, where souls are cleansed to prepare them for the ultimate ascent to heaven. Presented with the original Italian text, and with Merwin''s notes and commentary, this luminous new interpretation of Dante''s great poem of sin, repentance, and salvation is a profoundly moving work of art and the definitive translation for our time.
