This translation by Tom Simone provides a text that is close to Dante’s meter and style as is possible using modern English. In such a way a student gets a feel for the structure and impact of the original, and it could also provide an easy segue to the original Italian. Simone provides an extensive introduction, ample footnotes for references that may not be clear to the reader, and each Canto provides a prose overview of the poetry to follow, all designed to provide the modern student with access to this important work.
