Summary (From the publisher):

In The Inferno Dante described his journey to the depths of evil, to the recognition of the true nature of sin. In The Purgatorio he now describes his journey to the renunciation of sin, accepting his suffering in preparation for his entrance into the presence of God. This brilliant translation of Dante’s soaring canticle crystallizes the power and beauty inherent in the great poet’s immortal conception of the aspiring soul.

Edition #2: Purgatory

Purgatory (1981)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

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 contemplates 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 becomes the universal poet, sublime, grim, intellectual, simple, humorous, tender, and ecstatic.
