Isn’t there a wonderful new translation of Dante out there–is it by Robert Fagles, the guy who did such a brilliant job with Homer? Love the illos from the University of Texas site, they look scary/creepy…

I don’t have access to a lot of English books where I am, Cliff, but I’ll keep it in mind.

Traditionally you only read the hell section and ignore the others. i’ve often seen it in English bookstores in China, along with Dickens and John Grisham.
