Summary
A brilliant concept beautifully executed--a new version of Dante's masterpiece, translated by 20 contemporary English-speaking poets selected not for their familiarity with Italian or for proven skills at translation, but for the quality of their own poetry in English. Among them: Seamus Heaney, Amy Clampitt, Jorie Graham, Charles Wright, Richard Howard, Carolyn Forche, W.S. Merwin, and Robert Haas
