Summary (From the publisher):

In The Inferno Dante journeyed to the depths of evil and the true nature of sin. In The Purgatorio he explored the renunciation of sin. Now, in The Paradiso, the final canticle in The Divine Comedy, Dante shares the ultimate goal of human striving—the merging of individual destiny with universal order. One of the towering creations of world literature, this epic discovery of sublime truth is a work of almost mystical intensity—an immortal hymn to God, Nature, Eternity, and, above all, “the Love that moves the Sun and other stars.”

Paradise (1984)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

In his translation of Paradise, Mark Musa exhibits the same sensitivity to language and knowledge of translation that enabled his versions of Inferno and Purgatory to capture the vibrant power and full dramatic force of Dante’s poetry.


Professor Musa’s extraordinary translation and his interpretive commentary, informative glossary, and bibliography clarify the theological themes and make Dante accessible to the English-speaking public.
