    Description

    Dante's Divine Comedy is considered to be not only the most important epic poem in Italian literature, but also one of the greatest poems ever written. It consists of 100 cantos, and (after an introductory canto) they are divided into three sections. Each section is 33 cantos in length, and they describe how Dante and a guide travel through Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.

    Expertly translated here by the famous poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Dante's masterpiece leaps vividly to life in this production.

    Philosophically, the poem is based on the theological works of St. Thomas Aquinas. The Divine Comedy is essentially an allegory of the progress of the human soul toward God and the progress of mankind toward peace on earth. Many of the characters involved are drawn from ancient Roman history and from Dante's contemporaries, making the work a realistic picture of Italian life in the early 14th century. As well, it is an intensely developed analysis of human affairs. In structure the poem appears to be a description of the afterlife. But it is in essence, a compassionate, oral evaluation of humanity and a mystical vision of the Absolute toward which mankind struggles. The Divine Comedy endures today because of the universality of its drama and the lyric quality of the poetry, and not as the result of any doctrinal content.

    Timeless masterpiece!

    My only regret when reading "The Divine Comedy" is not being able to read it in its original language. Nevertheless, Longfellow's translation of this masterpiece is without a doubt something great to experience.

    Charlton Griffin's excellent narration, as well as the great production quality, make of this audio book a must have along with the actual book.

    Not for listening.

    Longfellow was a wonderful poet, but the linguistic hoops he jumps through to preserve the form of the cantos leaves comprehension in the dust for the listener. Charlton Griffin can't save this muddle. It is almost incomprehensible at times. Almost everything in Italian rhymes, not so with English. One thing that is missing is comprehensive footnotes on the political background and personalities that Dante meets. Still, the language is beautiful, just don't expect to follow it in your car.

    Timeless poetry

    This is a decent translation of the Comedy, though perhaps not my favorite. Griffin's narration moved the story along nicely without getting in the way, and the sound effects at the beginning of each canto contributed to the otherworldly atmosphere of the book.

    Divine Comedy

    The epic of all epics. Carlton Griffin is magnificent. His pronunciation and intonation made it so much more reachable.

    What a Masterpiece!

    This is a truly great tool for reading Dante's masterpiece. This, to my knowledge, is the only quality audiobook of The Divine Comedy, and it does not disappoint. I had to read it multiple times in order to get a familiarity with the narrative in order to do research for and write my undergraduate thesis. The translation of Dante's Commedia in this audio recording is Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's English translation, a literary masterpiece by its own right. Its lyrical verse helps bring the epic poem to life for the English reader, and it made it easier for me to memorize large portions of the text by replaying it over and over again on this recording. I don't think I could have completed my thesis without this excellent, audio edition of one of the Western Canon's greatest texts. I actually first subscribed to Audible just to get this audiobook, and this alone has been worth the subscription. Couldn't recommend it more!

    Good story told to put you to death

    What disappointed you about The Divine Comedy?

    The narrator failed to even keep me awake it was horrid

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Dante I read the divine comedy several times when I was younger I got my husband to get it and he wanted to drive his car off of the road... I thought he was just exaggerating until I tried to listen to it and couldn't get through five minutes :/

    Wonderful read

    First off, I may not have made it through this book had it not been for the performance. It added a deep rich layer to this story. I think I got lost in the beauty of the narrator's voice as much as I did the beauty of the words.

    Now, because it is written in poetic form you have to pay attention to the words. It isn't a book you can drift off in as easily as you can with any other book. Of course, that is why I made the comment above. It took focus on every word.

    I was amazed at the imagination and detail of the realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven that was painted. That was my second most favorite part.

    better on paper

    the content does not lend itself well to audio format. great work of literature, but is enjoyment is found in slower contemplation and review of passages.

    When does the real poem start

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I listened to the preview and the story started out in the dark woods. What I am listening to is Dante's life history. when does the poem start. I don't want a personal history, but the art created by Dante.

    What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he's fine

    Any additional comments?

    I want to listen to his history totally different than the preview to the book. Why. and where is the story I am on section 9 chapter 27. I don't get it. Help

    Wasted Credit

    What disappointed you about The Divine Comedy?

    To anyone reading this, save your credit. I hated this listening to this book so much that I could not finish it. The narrator was completely monotone and the music along with the thunderstorm sounds made it worse. I actually wanted to listen to this classic but I think I will just read it in paper form instead.

    Has The Divine Comedy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Just this narrator.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I did not finish it due to the boring narrator.

    Any additional comments?

    I usually like to read and listen to classical literature. However, this audiobook is one of the worst I have ever listened to. I would not recommend it to anyone.

    Inhaltsverzeichnis defekt

    Es ist unmöglich gezielt zu einem canto zu springen. Für den schwierigen Text ein Desaster.
