NOTE: SOLD AS SET ONLYMusa's commentary is thorough and clear... recommended. -Library JournalAmong currently available parallel-text editions, this one certainly has the most elaborate and helpful annotation... -ChoiceThe publication of the first two volumes of the six-volume Divine Comedy brings readers Mark Musa's vivid verse translation of the Inferno. Musa has revised his earlier version, long cited as the most accessible and reliable of the English translations. The dual-language first volume presents Musa's translation with facing Italian text, and compiled in the second volume is his lifetime study of the Inferno, where Musa examines and discusses the critical commentary of other Dante scholars and presents his own ideas and interpretations.
