Inferno: A New Verse Translation (New Verse Translation by Michael Palma) (Vol 1)


"Palma's splendidly readable translation comes with regards to perfection. i am tempted to name it a miracle."―X. J. Kennedy

not like each recognized translator earlier than him, Michael Palma re-creates Dante's masterpiece in all its dimensions, with no emphasizing a few points over others, rendering Inferno into modern American English whereas keeping Dante's unique triple rhyme scheme. the result's a translation that may be favored for its literal faithfulness and lovely poetic shape, followed by means of facing-page Italian and explanatory notes. "A very good translation; hugely recommended."―Library Journal "I locate Michael Palma's Inferno to be person who i am having a difficult time improving."―Lawrence Ferlinghetti "I imagine hugely of Michael Palma's Inferno....Readers will locate it admirably transparent and readable."―Richard Wilbur
