Praise

"The perfect balance of tightness and colloquialism . . . Likely to be the best modern version of Dante."
Bernard O’Donoghue

"Kirkpatrick brings a more nuanced sense of the Italian and a more mediated appreciation of the poem’s construction than nearly all of his competitors."
The Times (London)

"We gain much from Kirkpatrick’s fidelity to syntax and nuance. . . . His introduction . . . tells you, very readable indeed, pretty much all you need for a heightened appreciation of the work."
The Guardian (London)
