1 Review
The New York Times Book Review welcomed Joseph Tusiani's retelling of Dante's Inferno with these words: this is a book "whose subject matter should be among the building blocks of a youngster's education. Dante's Inferno as Told for Young People by Joseph Tusiani...combines summary, paraphrase, commentary, and on occasion translation of the lines. It is regrettable that Mr. Tusiani, a poet in his own right, did not offer more of the last..." In this volume, which includes Purgatory and Paradise, Professor Tusiani accompanies Dante on his timeless journey to redemption sharing insights gathered in his long acquaintance with the work. His role is similar to Virgil's, a guide and a teacher for today's young people.
