This edition is published to celebrate 700th anniversary of the death of the mediaeval poet and includes extensive notes, illustrations by Gustave Doré and a critical apparatus focusing on the author’s life and works.

Dante’s dramatic journey down the circles of Hell, up the mountain of Purgatory and through the spheres of Heaven in search of redemption—and his encounter with devils, monsters and the souls of sinners and saints—is one of the cornerstones of Western literature, the summit of medieval thinking and arguably the highest poetic achievement of all time.
This 700th Anniversary Edition of The Divine Comedy is presented in a verse translation by acclaimed poet and prize-winning translator J.G. Nichols, together with extensive notes, illustrations by Gustave Doré and a critical apparatus focusing on the author’s life and works.
