Product Details


”The Hollanders have rendered both the supple lyricism and the rich imagery of the Purgatorio with an admirably informed expertise. . . . A model for all translators.” The Literary Review

“The Hollanders’ translation . . . seems the most accessible and the closest to the Italian. . . . The provision of informative notes . . . is impeccable . . . with ample commentary easily and unobturisvely available at the end of each canto.” –Tim Parks, The New Yorker

“The Hollanders’ translation is probably the most finely accomplished and may well prove the most enduring.” –R.W. B. Lewis, Los Angeles Times
