This edition gives a side-by-side parallel translation of Dante's Divine Comedy using Longfellow's translation. The Divine Comedy is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321. It is generally considered to be the preeminent work of Italian literature and one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem is written in the Tuscan dialect, and the poem helped establish this dialect as the standardized Italian language. The poem is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. At the superficial level, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven; but at a deeper level, it ia an allegory of the soul's journey towards God. In order to articulate this journey towards God, Dante uses on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially Thomistic philosophy and the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas. Longfellow's translation is considered to be the best translation, overall. Longfellow, being a poet himself, was able to create a flowing translation that has not been surpassed.

A New York Times Bestseller Words can bleed. In 1865 Boston, the literary geniuses of the Dante Club—poets and Harvard professors Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, and James Russell Lowell, along with publisher J. T. Fields—are finishing America’s first translation of The Divine Comedy and preparing to unveil Dante’s remarkable visions to the New World. The powerful Boston Brahmins at Harvard College are fighting to keep Dante in obscurity, believing that the infiltration of foreign superstitions into American minds will prove as corrupting as the immigrants arriving at Boston Harbor. The members of the Dante Club fight to keep a sacred literary cause alive, but their plans fall apart when a series of murders erupts through Boston and Cambridge. Only this small group of scholars realizes that the gruesome killings are modeled on the descriptions of Hell’s punishments from Dante’s Inferno. With the lives of the Boston elite and Dante’s literary future in America at stake, the Dante Club members must find the killer before the authorities discover their secret. Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes and an outcast police officer named Nicholas Rey, the first black member of the Boston police department, must place their careers on the line to end the terror. Together, they discover that the source of the murders lies closer to home than they ever could have imagined. The Dante Club is a magnificent blend of fact and fiction, a brilliantly realized paean to Dante’s continued grip on our imagination, and a captivating thriller that will surprise readers from beginning to end. From the Hardcover edition.

The Paradise, which Dante called the sublime canticle, is perhaps the most ambitious book of The Divine Comedy. In this climactic segment, Dante's pilgrim reaches Paradise and encounters the Divine Will. The poet's mystical interpretation of the religious life is a complex and exquisite conclusion to his magnificent trilogy. Mark Musa's powerful and sensitive translation preserves the intricacy of the work while rendering it in clear, rhythmic English. His extensive notes and introductions to each canto make accessible to all readers the diverse and often abstruse ingredients of Dante's unparalleled vision of the Absolute: elements of Ptolemaic astronomy, medieval astrology and science, theological dogma, and the poet's own personal experiences.

The Song of Hiawatha is an epic poem, written in 1855 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This version comes with copious illustrations and with line numbers, it also comprises five other poems: The Skeleton in Armor, The Wreck of the Hesperus, The Luck of Edenhall, The Elected Knight, and The Children of the Lord's Supper.The Song of Hiawatha is about an Indian hero who is based on the legends of the Ojibwe and other Native American peoples. Longfellow's work is a saga in the genre of American Romantic literature, and is not representative of Native American oral tradition. Longfellow had originally planned to call his hero Manabozho, which was the name of a Ojibwe folklore trickster-transformer . However, in his journal entry on June 28th, 1854, he wrote, "Work at 'Manabozho;' or, as I think I shall call it, 'Hiawatha'-that being another name for the same personage." Longfellow was mistaken about this, Hiawatha was probably an Iroquois hero. But as a result of the popularity of the poem, "Hiawatha" was used as a common name for everything, from towns to a telephone company, in the region of the western Great Lakes, where no Iroquois live.

The wording "Dante and Islam" has existed for nearly a century, but it can be jarring to juxtapose the poet most emblematic of medieval Christianity with the name of a rival monotheism. Controversy has raged recurrently for many decades about what the Divine Comedy can tell about perspectives of Christians in the Middle Ages on Muslims. The artistic tradition associated with the poem has kindled powerful reactions within Islam even recently. Two extremes in approaches to Dante's views on Islam emphasize on the one hand the hostility proclaimed by the twentieth-century conception of "clash of civilizations," and the peaceful cohabitation associated with the modern Spanish term convivencia. Where does Dante's great poem fit within the framework of orientalism that has been debated since Edward W. Said's 1978 book? Portions of present-day Italy were ruled by Muslims for two hundred years, and afterward a sort of concentration camp for them on the Italian mainland was not forcibly dispersed until 1300. For centuries Christians and Muslims lived cheek by jowl, and in Sicily they achieved a remarkable multicultural symbiosis associated under the polyglot Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II. To look at matters from a more literary perspective, the Spanish Arabist Miguel Asín Palacios contended in 1919 that for much of the basic framework of the Divine Comedy Dante was indebted to apocryphal traditions about a "night journey" taken by Muhammad. Texts that may support his hypothesis were brought to light in the years around World War II. Making sense of the issues requires investigating what was known of the Qur'an and of Islamic philosophy and science in Dante's day; it necessitates exploring the bases for Dante's images of Muhammad and Ali; and it compels us to look at the key instances of engagement among Muslims, Jews, and Christians, especially Christian Italians.
