The Paradiso

by Dante Alighieri, translated by John Ciardi

In the third part of the Divine Comedy, the character of Dante Alighieri ascends through the seven spheres of the Heaven to the presence of God Himself. Despite my quibbles with his theology and outright rejection of his cosmology, I loved how Dante (the author) was able to make the heavenly journey crescendo to its ultimate conclusion. It's a beautiful work of literature. 

It's on my shelf!
