Description - Inferno by Dante Alighieri
Originally released on 3 CDs in abridged form. Now available on 4 CDs unabridged. "Abandon all hope you who enter here" (Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch'intrate) Dante's Hell is one of the most remarkable visions in Western literature. An allegory for his and future ages, it is, at the same time, an account of terrifying realism. Passing under a lintel emblazoned with these frightening words, the poet is lead down into the depths by Virgil and shown those doomed to suffer eternal torment for vices exhibited and sins committed on earth. Inferno is the first part of the long journey which continues through redemption to revelation - through Purgatory and Paradise - and, in this translation prepared especially for audiobook, his images are as vivid as when the poem was first written in the early years of the 14th century. With music of the period.
