Belonging in the company of the works of Homer and Virgil, "The Inferno" is a moving human drama, a journey through the torment of Hell, an expression of the Middle Ages, and a protest against the ways in which men have thwarted the divine plan.

Absolutely amazing value! Dante's Divine Comedy is a capital c Classic. The Signets Classics edition is fabulous because it's compact and cheap, and has one translator over the three books. I now have an amazing addition to my bookshelf for a grand total of $22!
