In the second volume of his definitive translation of The Divine Comedy, Mark Musa again brings his poetic sensitivity and skill as a translator and annotator to the difficult task of making Dante's masterpiece vital for English-speaking readers. In Purgatory, Dante deals with the origins of sin as he struggles up the terraces of Mount Purgatory on his arduous journey toward God. In Musa's fine idiomatic translation - complete with prose introductions, bibliography, and glossary - Dante comes alive as the universal poet - sublime, grim, intellectual, simple, humorous, tender, and ecstatic. 'It moves one to virtual awe... The language itself becomes, as it should, a religious experience. Los Angeles Times
