Paradise

by Dante Alighieri
Release date: 1961
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

The final volume in this brilliant translation destined to take its place among the great English versions of The Divine Comedy.

In this translation of Paradise, Mark Musa exhibits the same sensitivity to language and knowledge of translation that enabled his versions of the Inferno and Purgatory to capture the vibrant power and full dramatic force of Dante's poetry. Dante relates his mystical interpretation of the heavens, and his moment of transcendent glory, as he journeys, first with Beatrice, then alone, toward the Trinity.

Professor Musa's extraordinary translation and his interpretive commentary, informative glossary, and bibliography clarify the theological themes and make Dante accessible to the English-speaking public.
