    Inhaltsangabe

    "Abandon all hope you who enter here." ("Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch’intrate.") Dante’s Hell is one of the most remarkable visions in Western literature. An allegory for his and future ages, it is, at the same time, an account of terrifying realism. Passing under a lintel emblazoned with these frightening words, the poet is led down into the depths by Virgil and shown those doomed to suffer eternal torment for vices exhibited and sins committed on earth.

    Inferno is the first part of the long journey which continues through redemption to revelation - through Purgatory and Paradise - and, in this translation, prepared especially for the audiobook, his images are as vivid as when the poem was first written in the early years of the 14th century.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Actor and writer Heathcote Williams gives a masterful performance of Benedict Flynn's blank verse translation. Williams modulates his smooth baritone into different characters, maintaining an even pace through this classic work. The cantos are punctuated by short selections of music ranging from Gregorian chant to Renaissance dance music.... A plaintive horn sounds the beginning of Inferno, the beginning of Dante's journey from The Gloomy Wood to the Circles of Hell. Dante begins alone in a fog of seeking and confusion until he encounters the shade of Virgil. When the poets begin the descent at the beginning of Canto Three, Williams's booming voice is technologically enhanced to create an echo for the famous line, "Abandon all hope, you who enter here."

    Not a Comedy but still an interesting read

    After often hearing about the divine comedy and it's contents i decided to listen to it. While i didn't expect it to be funny or humorous what it actually was, i wasn't expecting at all.
    This is a very interesting interpretation of what the idea of hell might look like. This audiobook is nothing for people who are easily disturbed. From outgrown limbs to souls locked inside trees the sufferers have to go through horrible punishments. Still as i said if you are not faint of heart this book is a really worthwile lecture.

    Heathcote Williams did a great job interpreting how the lost souls as well as the demons might sound like.

    Ps. Knowledge about greek and italian history as well as it's fantastic works (Homer, Virgil,...) might come in handy.
