Product Details

Praise

“A great work of art like The Divine Comedy carries in it what readers in successive generations feel to be its ‘modernity’: what it says to us, now. David Black, a poet and psychoanalyst, by his translation, introduction, and notes, helps us into that enormous benefit. He enables Dante into our present lives.” —David Constantine

“David Black’s Purgatorio offers fresh insight into Dante’s poetry. We encounter a Dante whose psychological acumen is surprisingly relevant to us today. We are invited to read the Purgatorio as a journey of discovery: Dante’s discovery of his gifts and limitations; and through that, our discovery of resources that can help us address some of the pressing challenges of our time.” —Vittorio Montemaggi

“David Black’s translation of the Purgatorio unites psychological insight and intuitive understanding with scholarship and love of language.” —Ronald Britton
