Dante Alighieri (Author), John Ciardi (Translator), Archibald T.

Dante Alighieri was born in 1265. Considered Italy’s greatest poet, this scion of a Florentine family mastered the art of lyric poetry at an early age. His first major work, La Vita Nuova (1292), was a tribute to Beatrice Portinari, the great love of his life. Dante’s political activism resulted in his being exiled from Florence, and he eventually settled in Ravenna. It is believed that The Divine Comedy-comprising three canticles, The Inferno, The Purgatorio, and The Paradiso-was written between 1308 and 1320. Dante Alighieri died in 1321.

View on timesmachine. IF my count is correct, this is the nineteenth new English translation of "The Purgatorio" published in the last forty years. Poets love to translate Dante, as an experience and as a test.

Dante Alighieri, John Ciardi (Translator). Archibald T. MacAllister (Introduction). Purgatorio Purgatory (The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri Purgatory (Italian: Purgatorio) is the second part of Dante's Divine Comedy, following the Inferno, and preceding the Paradiso. The poem was written in the early 14th century. It is an allegory telling of the climb of Dante up the Mount of Purgatory, guided by the Roman poet Virgil, except for the last four cantos at which point Beatrice takes over as Dante's guide.

Ciardi's translation of The Purgatorio followed in 1961 and The Paradiso in 1970. John Ciardi died on Easter Sunday in 1986 of a heart attack.

Born Dante Alighieri in the spring of 1265 in Florence, Italy, he was known familiarly as Dante. His family was noble, but not wealthy, and Dante received the education accorded to gentlemen, studying poetry, philosophy, and theology. His first major work was Il Vita Nuova, The New Life. Ciardi's translation of The Purgatorio followed in 1961 and The Paradiso in 1970. Библиографические данные. The Purgatorio Signet Classics Series.

In the second part of Dante's epic poem about about the three realms of the Christian afterlife, a spiritual pilgrim is led by Virgil up the terraces of Mount Purgatory. Reprint.

Love it and I consider it a huge personal achievement to complete the second Comedia Cantica. A rich church today is just as likely corrupted and degenerate as it was a 1000 year ago when Dante's despaired over the corrupt papacy which he reflected that prominently in his Inferno and Purgatorio. A book I would not want to die without reading it because it has raised my consciousness of the process of sanctification, a necessary process to purify oneself in preparation to meet our perfect Maker. Before reading The Purgatorio, the concept of purgatory was entirely foreign to me even though I am familiar with the Bible and am affiliated with the Presbyterian church. That's because the Bible does not talk about purgatory, only sanctification while true believers are alive and they never ever reach perfection until the day they die. The Purgatorio is extremely difficult read without help for a first timer because of the poetry, ancient history and mythology in the text. Hence the excellent annotations and scholarly notes at the end of The Purgatorio from learned translator like John Ciardi has enhanced my enjoyment of Dante's purgatory infinitely. The images from paintings related to Dante's works I obtained from the internet were also critical in helping me with visual imaginations because imagery is an essential element in enjoying Dante. Purgatory is one aspect of Catholicism I found appealing although I wonder whether priests take liberty of sinning because they think it is possible to reach paradise after doing time in Purgatory. Compared to Inferno, Purgatory has much more biblical references and Dante's interpretation of them. Although written about 900 years ago, I was curious with Dante's biblical views compared to mine. A good knowledge of the bible is undeniably absolutely essential to full appreciation of The Purgatorio. Having climbed the peak of purgatory, my next stop is the final segment of The Divine Comedy, Paradiso.
For a long time I had been meaning to read the John Ciardi translation of The Divine Comedy. I had read several other translations. I also happen to very much enjoy Ciardi's poetry. I had started the Ciardi translation of the Inferno and then shifted to the Anthony Esolen translation which I had read before and do enjoy. I read the Ciardi translation of the Purgatorio and find it good but not great and find some confusions which the translator admits to. I prefer the Alan Mandelbaum translation, that of Mark Musa or Esolen to this by Ciardi. Recently I read the Paradiso, starting with the Ciardi translation and then at Canto 5 shifting to Esolen.
I truly enjoy reading the classics. However some classics must be translated. Some translations loose meaning since you can not translate word for word. Only the meanings can be translated and with the evolving English language sometimes words can have skewed definitions. John Ciardi is the best Dante translator I have read. Signet has done a good job at this price point. The Devine comedy is a book set that will expand your understanding on many uncannonized ideas. The Inferno (Signet Classics)The Paradiso (Signet Classics)The Purgatorio (Signet Classics)
"The Purgatorio" was translated by the American poet, John Ciardi, and is accompanied by copious notes. If you want to plunge further into Dante you can, but it is by no means essental! I would give this ten stars if I could.
The poet makes a fine companion and guide through the difficulties of Dante. The balance between poetry and meaning is good, and evokes the original without requiring a course in the politics of the fourteenth century.
Great purchase for reader
This is an excellent translation but it is a shame that the editing is so poor with typos throughout. Don't let them stop you reading it
Classic story, great translation.
