Originally released on 3 CDs in abridged form. Now available on 4 CDs unabridged. "Abandon all hope you who enter here" (Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch'intrate) Dante's Hell is one of the most remarkable visions in Western literature. An allegory for his and future ages, it is, at the same time, an account of terrifying realism. Passing under a lintel emblazoned with these frightening words, the poet is lead down into the depths by Virgil and shown those doomed to suffer eternal torment for vices exhibited and sins committed on earth. Inferno is the first part of the long journey which continues through redemption to revelation - through Purgatory and Paradise - and, in this translation prepared especially for audiobook, his images are as vivid as when the poem was first written in the early years of the 14th century. With music of the period.

The booklet that accompanies the discs is fabulous. An opening Note by Roger Marsh is followed by Notes discussing aspect of the text, thus:
The Poets arrive at the door of Hell and pass through to the antechamber. Within are shades who achieved neither praise nor blame in life, rejected by Heaven and Hell. Charon, who ferries the souls of the damned to Hades, refuses to ferry the living souls across the Acheron. Dante falls unconscious.
good of intellect: souls who lost sight of the 'Supreme Truth' of God.
great refusal: either Pontius Pilate or Celestine V who abdicated in favour of Boniface VIII."
The booklet is infused with a gallery of the majestic Gustave Dore illustrations for THE DIVINE COMEDY.
I love this audio set and highly recommend it.
I often try to match up recordings (read aloud through Audible.com) and the same translation on Kindle. Sometimes Amazon does this for me and it’s called Whispersync. In this case, I tried several combinations and couldn’t get it quite right. When I came across Heathcote Williams as narrator and the Benedict Flynn translation, I could not find the Kindle match-up. But because, Williams is such a good reader, I followed along with a different translation (Charles Eliot Norton in the GBWW by Britannica).
I like to read and listen together, and I prefer the readability of this translation to Longfellow’s.
I recommend this translation for its readability. I also like Dorothy Sayers’ rendition in English verse, and John Sinclair’s prose version. Jean and Robert Hollander have a verse translation without rhyme.
