Divine Comedy: v. 3: Paradise

With this volume, Kathryn Lindskoog completes her three-volume edition of Dante's Divine Comedy. In this masterful retelling of the classic work, Lindskoog provides an edition that once again places the Christian's journey to Paradise as the primary purpose of the poem. With Inferno and Purgatory, Dante's journey has taken him through hell and purgatory, led by the poet Virgil. At the end of Purgatory, Beatrice appears to lead Dante home to Paradise.With grace and clarity, Paradise is now readable in a prose version that will inspire and enlighten the reader. Lindskoog provides notes that guide the reader through the realms of heaven, pointing out characters and their significance. This prose version makes clear that the journey for Dante, and thus for all readers, is a journey to joy.
