Read the original Inferno and search for the secrets to Dan Brown’s Inferno!
In the highly anticipated new novel by bestselling author Dan Brown, the Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. The most famous of the three canticles that comprise The Divine Comedy, Inferno describes Dante’s descent into Hell with Virgil as his guide. Robin Kirkpatrick’s brilliant translation—“likely to be the best modern version” (Bernard O’Donoghue)—is the perfect companion to Dan Brown’s Inferno for readers looking to unlock its secrets.
“Although I studied Dante’s Inferno in high school, it wasn’t until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante’s work on the modern world.” —Dan Brown, author of Inferno and The Da Vinci Code
“Kirkpatrick brings a more nuanced sense of the Italian and a more mediated appreciation of the poem’s construction than nearly all of his competitors.” —The Times (London)
