Praise

“Dante and Shakespeare divide the world between them—there is no third.”—T.S. Eliot

“Ciardi has given us…a credible, passionate persona of the poet, stripped of the customary gauds of rhetoric and false decoration, strong and noble in utterance.”—Dudley Fitts
 
“A sensitive and perceptive translation…a spectacular achievement.”—Archibald MacLeish

“I think [Ciardi’s] version of Dante will be in many respects the best we have seen.”—John Crowe Ransom
