The Divine Comedy

By Alighieri, Dante; Ciardi, John [translator]

Quarter brown cloth over red boards, gilt spine titles, red top edge. Volume is in mint, unread condition. Dustjacket is in very good condition with one small closed tear back edge, tiny chip and ruffling to edges. John Ciardi (1916 – 1986) was an Italian-American poet, translator, and etymologist. "The love of Ciardi's intellectual and tribal life was Dante Alighieri. T. S. Eliot's belief that "Dante and Shakespeare divide the world between them, there is no third," was enough to set Ciardi to translating "The Divine Comedy." This 1954 translation has become the standard English text, both for college students going into the inferno for the first time and for scholars seeking the paradise of pure language. Ciardi said that the poem is "an inexhaustible invitation to poetic pleasure. . . . Any good poem releases more meaning than can be overtly asserted. No poet achieves greater effect than Dante in his release of the unspoken insight." John Ciardi's Crucial Grace, Colman McCarthy, The Washington Post April 19, 1986.
