In this first part of the epic The Divine Comedy, Dante is led by the poet Virgil down into the nine circles of Hell, where he travels through nightmare landscapes of fetid cesspools, viper pits, frozen lakes, and boiling rivers of blood and witnesses sinners being beaten, burned, eaten, defecated upon, and torn to pieces by demons.

Lyrically graceful and brimming with startlingly vivid images, Dantes Inferno is a perpetually engrossing classic that ranks with the greatest works of Homer and Shakespeare.
