The Inferno: The Definitive Illustrated Edition, Dante Alighieri

Kindle Edition, 192 pages
Published June 22nd 2016 by Dover Publications

This edition of The Inferno offered visual artistry and a deeper understanding of this text. Dante’s Inferno has been on the must-read lists of schools and universities for decades, but this edition really brought it to life, both highlighting its wondrous darkness and magnifying the mystifying interpretation of hell, redemption and baptism by fire that Dante Alighieri painted for us all those centuries ago. However, I wish that the illustrations had included color. Color can work wonders that this one fell short of. Still, The Inferno is a classic and remains so.
