Like his groundbreaking Inferno (Hackett, 2009) and Paradiso (Hackett, 2017), Stanley Lombardo's Purgatorio features a close yet dynamic verse translation, innovative verse paragraphing for reader-friendliness, and a facing-page Italian text. It also offers judicious headnotes and notes by Ruth Chester and an Introduction by Claire E. Honess and Matthew Treherne.

In The Press
"Fresh, lively, and reliable, Stanley Lombardo's Purgatorio easily earns its place in the great tradition of English-language renderings of Dante. Excellent introductory material and footnotes help to make this a version that will appeal to scholars, students, and general readers alike."
—Steven Botterill, Associate Professor of Italian Studies, University of California, Berkeley
