Having taught with this volume this past year, Mark Musa does an excellent job not just in his translation, but in his contextualization of the incredible Tuscan Poet.

It's very hard to just "review Dante", so I will say that Musa gives excellent and short summaries, biographies, commentaries, and annotations to the text itself. The selection of what works to include is thoughtful and very (helpfully) representative across Dante's life and across the entire Commedia, so I very much recommend this particular edition as a very good and capable introduction to Dante, the Divine Comedy, and the Vita Nuova.

A classic, pure genuis from Dante and this - I have been told and after reading, I agree with - is the best English translation out there for the average reader who is reading for enjoyment. However, my advice is that only Inferno and Purgatory (the first and second part) are worth reading; Paradise (the third part) is long-winded, boring and just isn't as exciting as the first two. A lot of other people have told me this too, that they couldn't get through Paradise without falling asleep. It's amazing writing (althoughI wish I could read the orignial text in Italian!) but it somehow lacks the suspense and intrigue as Inferno.

Also, this really helped me get through the book: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divine_Comedy
I printed it out and kept it near me when I was reading the book to double-check I understood what was going on =) ( )

It was rather easy to see why Inferno gets all the praise and recognition from this collection - it was really the only memorable part. Purgatory and Heaven were awfully stale and boring. ( )

483. The Portable Dante: The Divine Comedy translated by Laurence Binyon, La Vita Nuova translated by D. G. Rossetti, Excerpts from the Rhymes and the Latin Prose Works - Edited by Paolo Milano (read 11 Sept 1955) I did not read this as carefully as I should have, and had little interest in some parts. ( )

Mark Musa's translation is straightforward, easy to follow, and in friendly blank verse. I only wish I had purchased the individual Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso, because apparently they have many more notes. The notes are somewhat sporadic in this version (being portable, after all) and you get the feeling they were selected at random - some persons, referred-to events, and concepts are explained at length and others are not at all. But maybe I just don't know better.

A personal four stars, but it's a five-star translation in a handy little package and I can't really fault it for lacking footnotes. ( )
