The Purgatorio

by Dante Alighieri, translated by John Ciardi

This is the second volume of Dante's Divine Comedy. (Technically, I don't know if the Comedy is really a three-volume work or if that's just how Penguin Books published it. But I digress...) I found this the least interesting part--I don't know if it was that the imagery was less dramatic than in The Inferno or it was because I don't believe in Purgatory. Still, it's worth the read for the gems of Dante's craft that do shine forth.
