Divine Comedies for the New Millennium: Recent Dante Translations in America and the Netherlands
The difficulty of translating Dante has, paradoxically, created a steady of flux of translations.

In the course of discussing these landmark translations, contributors to this volume inevitably make statements about how Dante's masterpiece should be read: as a poem, to be translated fearlessly and confrontationally; as a scholarly text, to be treated cautiously and rigorously; or as some combination of the two?
