miraklemax is not currently reading any books.
I’m 40 years old, male, from the United States. I’ve been a DailyLit member since July 20, 2008. My reading interests include Classics, scifi, post apocolypse, and drama.
I haven’t started reading any books yet.
Yes, it is wonderful, but you must read the notes to get it all. I like Mark Musa's translation (it was the next to last Penguin Classic) version as he translates literally and well and writes great notes. He also doesn't sanitize Dante's language (like he'll use "a**hole" instead of "bottom" like Longfellow does).
