Dante's Purgatorio PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dante's Purgatorio free pdf Following the acclaim for their innovative edition of "Dante's Inferno," Sandow Birk and Marcus Sanders guide us to the next level of the afterlife in "Dante's Purgatorio." The second book of Dante Alighieri's classic poem "The Divine Comedy," this version of "Purgatorio" couples a clever literary adaptation incorporating modern urban speech and contemporary references with powerful illustrations inspired by Gustave Dor's famous engravings. Whereas "Inferno" was primarily situated in a city that bears a curious resemblance to modern Los Angeles, "Purgatorio" is set in a surreal San Francisco Bay Area, an outlandish and hopeful milieu for those who have a chance to wash their sins away. Together, the sardonic yet playful combination of text and images comprise a vivid retelling of this masterpiece.
