NEW! Dante’s Inferno in COMIC BOOK Format! Never before has Dante's classic masterpiece been presented in this way. Now you can experience this major work of world literature in a simplified adaptation. The storyboard is made up of the powerful illustrations by Gustave Doré. The easy to understand narrative is by Joseph Lanzara, author of the popular “Plain English” versions of Paradise Lost and Romeo and Juliet. This graphic novel pulls no punches. Dante’s harrowing journey through Hell is not for the squeamish. It is a powerful, but ultimately inspiring story of sin, punishment, self-sacrifice and redemption.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, U.S.A., where I worked as an artist and draftsman. My current profession involves preserving historic documents, which is ironic since when I write I do just the opposite. I pull apart the classics and reassemble them in simpler format. I know how to make complicated stuff simple, so that's what I do. If you want to know what Shakespeare was saying between the lines, or read Dante's Inferno without having to go through hell to do it, I'm your man.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE DIVINE COMEDY of Dante and Doré becomes eminently accessible courtesy of Joseph Lanzara 18. Februar 2012
Von Grady Harp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Joseph Lanzara's stunning adaptation of Dante Alighieri's INFERNO is such a fine work of art, certainly one of the most sophisticated Graphic Novels to be released, may at first suggest the old classic comics of old - the way many youngster's took the short cut to 'reading' the books assigned in school. But this graphic novel is far more than that. Joseph Lanzara has taken on the challenge of making this immense work of literature accessible to everyone: his narrative is eloquent, precisely correct and has a keen sense of distillation of Dante's THE DIVINE COMEDY written in 1317 and moves Dante's journey with Virgil into the depths of the inferno and the heights of the heavens so that the 'story' flows comfortably and comprehensively well.

Lanzara has wisely elected to use the classic illustrations created by Gustave Doré, the gifted French illustrator who provided the powerful imagery for Dante's work. As biographer's have written, `Gustave Doré's (1832-1883) illustrations and Dante's Divine Comedy have become so intimately connected that even today, nearly 150 years after their initial publication, the artist's rendering of the poet's text still determines our vision of the Commedia. Planned by Doré as early as 1855, the Dante illustrations were the first in a series he referred to as the "chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature." In addition to Dante, Doré's list of illustrated great works included Homer, Ossian, Byron, Goethe, Racine, and Corneille. The placement of Dante's Commedia at the top of this list reflects the poet's popularity within mainstream French culture by the 1850s. The 19th century saw an expansion of interest in Dante's work which resulted in numerous translations of the Commedia into French, critical studies, newspapers, and specialized journals, and over 200 works of painting and sculpture between 1800-1930. Doré's choice of Dante's Inferno as the first of his proposed series of illustrated masterpieces of literature reflects the extent to which Dante had attained popular appeal in France by the 1860s. Finding it difficult to secure a publisher willing to take on the expense of producing the expensive folio edition the artist envisioned, Doré himself financed the publication of the first book of the series, Inferno, in 1861. The production was an immediate artistic and commercial success. Subsequently, Doré's Dante illustrations appeared in roughly 200 editions, with translations from the poet's original Italian available in multiple languages.'

And now Joseph Lanzara has added an entirely new dimension to the marriage of Dante and Doré, and referencing the English translations of the novel by Henry Francis Cary (1814) and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1867) he has develop the enormous scope of this epic into a succinct form, joining a selection of Doré's drawings with the adjacent words of Dante and the result is a visually powerful and literarily precise condensation of a masterpiece. The printing quality is excellent and the design of the story with the images is sophisticated.

For those who have never read THE DIVINE COMEDY this is an exceptionally fine a starting point: for those who have studied Dante this Graphic Novel presentation will be a delightful discovery. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp, February 12

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dante and Dore for the Mainstream 28. Juni 2012
Von Diana F. Von Behren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
If anyone says that Joseph Lanzara is attempting to replace Dante Aleghieri's famous Inferno-- Dante's Inferno (The Divine Comedy, Volume 1, Hell)--I would have to say that this simply isn't true. Lanzara's comic book version of Dante's allegorical poem reminds me of the old Classics Illustrated Comics that I collected as a kid. Indeed, these whittled down, illustrated renditions of notable works of literature persuaded young and reluctant readers to savor mini-versions of great artistry and rather than deter them from exploring the real deal later on, abbreviated versions like Classics Illustrated act as burning embers do to eventually fan a lasting flame. My first reading experiences were sitting on the floor of my cousin's bedroom, going through his vast collection of Classics Illustrated Comics and vying with my brother and other cousins for which one he was going to allow me to take home and fully read. This competitive spirit fostered an entire lifetime of reading pleasure.

In this case, Lanzara is introducing his reader not only to the great Dante and to Virgil, his guide, but to the Gustave Dore drawings that epitomize this epic masterpiece. In a scant thirty-pages, Lanzara recreates the Inferno and takes you on a whirlwind tour of the beautiful art that quintessentially represents the piece with winged angels and the woebegone denizens that populate Dante's unique brand of hell.

Lanzara doesn't need to modernize his text. He sticks to Henry Francis Cary's translation, peppering the Dore etchings with famous words the evoke the major story line magnificently.

Bottom line? Joseph Lanzara takes a "classic" tale out of the old Classic Illustrated Comic Book series in his recreation of "Dante's Inferno." Illustrated by the great master engraver Gustave Dore, Lanzara cannot go wrong. He presents an abbreviated but thoroughly adequate introduction into the classic tale where Dante blasts the authorities of his day that should urge his readers on to exploring the masterpiece in the original format. Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen To Hell and Back Again 27. Februar 2012
Von tvtv3 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Dante's THE INFERNO is one of those pieces of literature that has had a massive impact upon Western culture and its impact can be seen and felt even today. However, it's also a work that intimidates many people. Using Gustave Dore's famous black and white illustrations of THE DIVINE COMEDY and some of the dialogue taken from the text, Joseph Lanzara has molded together a work that is both breathtaking and highly accessible to a modern audience. Lanzara has streamlined the narrative, but readers who are new to Dante or THE DIVINE COMEDY will come away with some of the key points of the story as well as an appreciation of the vivid imagery contained within Dante's famed story after reading this graphic novel. DANTE'S INFERNO: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL makes an excellent introduction to THE DIVINE COMEDY, but it is also a work that students and fans of the text will probably enjoy and appreciate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dante for the Masses 1. April 2012
Von Nicola Mansfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Reason for Reading: Even though I have never read the original Dante's "The Divine Comedy", I am a fan of the story and I absolutely love Gustave Dore's engravings. This comic book version of "Inferno" immensely intrigued me.

What an absolutely "divine" adaptation of Dante's Inferno into comic book format! Truly a masterpiece use of the graphic format. Here Lanzara has taken Dante's seminal work and reduced it to a simplified, easy to read retelling which still contains the essential meat of the original plot. Even though not drawn until 500 years later, Dante just wouldn't be Dante without Gustave Dore's illustrations to the the modern reader. And Lanzara has managed to gather together a magnificent collection of Dore's work from "The Divine Comedy" to match up with his text perfectly that tells a smooth cohesive story of Dante's passage through the nine levels of Hell accompanied by Virgil, as he then reaches the ghost of his beloved Beatrice who quickly guides him through Heaven. But it is Dante's one act of selfless love halfway through the story that will end up being his redeeming glory.

A wonderful introduction to Dante's Inferno and a highly recommended comic. I see the author, Joseph Lanzara, is also the author of "Paradise Lost: The Novel Based Upon the Epic Poem" which has received good reviews. The same treatment of "The Divine Comedy" would certainly be appreciated by this reader!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Could have been more 21. April 2012
Von wiredweird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
OK, the Dore wood engravings are classics. Couldn't ask for a better illustrated guide to Dante's brilliant work. Somehow, though, the presentation as a whole doesn't do much for me. The added word balloons amount to a 30-something page summary of the story, in four or five sentences per page. It could have been a new interpretation, a satire, a mix of modern and traditional art, anything to give it new meaning. Instead, it's the adaptation you want when Cliff's Notes drag on too long for you.
