Most English translations of INFERNO are full of colorful, but meaningless language based on today's modern standards. Some translations are so elaborate that they are as difficult to read as the original Italian version. This translation uses the Longfellow translation as a base, but replaces the obscure or antiquated verbiage with the language of Modern English. This translation could easily be read and understood by today's reader. Adding the illustrations by Gustave Dore brings this classic work to life.

With the Roman poet Virgil as his guide, Dante passes through the nine circles of hell to salvation. As the two make their descent through the underworld, the severity of sin being punished increases, such that those in the ninth and deepest pit—the traitors—are encased in ice for eternity. At the centre of Hell, frozen to the waist and beating his wings in torment, is Satan, the one who would have overthrown God. Inferno is the first part of the Divine Comedy, the epic narrative poem by the medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri. Dante’s examination of the afterlife is continued in the remaining two parts of the Comedy, Purgatorio and Paradiso. A masterpiece of world literature, Inferno is a political and spiritual allegory, as well as an exquisite and elaborate imagining of the afterlife and the shape of divine justice.

Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) maintained that translation destroys the harmony of poetry. Yet his Commedia has been translated into English time and again over the last two-and-a-bit centuries. At last count, one-hundred and twenty-nine different translators have published at least one canticle of the Italian masterwork since the first in 1782, and countless more have translated individual cantos. Among them there are some of the finest poets in the English language, including Robert Lowell and the Irish Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney. Smith and Sonzogni have assembled and annotated two complete translations of Dante’s most popular canticle, Inferno, each canto translated by a different translator. To Hell and Back is a celebration of the art and craft of poetry translation; of the lexical palettes and syntactical tempos of the English language; and, of course, of the genius of one of the greatest poets of all times.
