   Fabulous introduction and notes
The introduction to this book is comprehensive and pensive. Daniel Dante writes beautifully and does a great job of explaining the framework of Anthony Esolen's Paradise. The notes are also extremely helpful, though I think I would have preferred footnotes to end notes, as I had to keep flipping to the back. However, it was a trivial distraction and I would never have begun to appreciate Dante's poetry without Esolen's notes. If anyone is interested in more, the author is preparing a series of spiritual CD's for the entire instructional comedy. As of this writing, only the CDs are available on the Inferno, but I am eagerly waiting for the rest of the series, because I think Esolen has a great way of explaining things.

   Highly Recommended!
A friend and I read the whole of Dr. Esolen's beautiful translation of Dante's Divine Comedy over a few months, along with the DVD lecture series on it that Dr. Esolen made and which is available through different vendors. I HIGHLY recommend the project to anyone, especially Catholics, because while the footnotes and endnotes are outstanding, the lecture series really brings it home to our lives and spirituality. Having a lecture series and a set of matching translations by a consummate scholar and faithful Catholic who has translated Dante's great Catholic opus into a work that can be appreciated beyond price is a precious pearl that I am so grateful to have and use.

   3rd book of Divine Comedy by Dante
Arrived in good shape, on time. I use this with the Inferno and the Purgatorio for an online class. I read and studied these long ago, but today I find deeper meaning and interest. The whole works wanted. This has the Italian alongside on the left page and that is interesting and helps remind me of my Italian... haven t gotten to this yet though the class has just started and runs through Lent.

   It’s the translator!!!
I purchased the paperback, the hardcover and the Kindle version of this book. Long story, I can not commend Anthony Esolen's translation highly enough. He brings such a wonderful understanding of Dante's poetry to the translation. Even if the translation was not as good as it is, I would still get it for the introduction.

   Ensolen great author
I have just started this book. I love his style and his research and his appendixes are invaluable. I will always keep his books and not give them away, as I do other books.
