This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. The Divine Comedy is widely considered to be the preeminent work in Italian literature and one of the greatest works of world literature. The narrative describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise or Heaven, while allegorically the poem represents the soul's journey towards God. Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy where the poet Virgil is presented as human reason and Beatrice is presented as divine knowledge. Thus, this edition brings to you the annotated translation of the Divine Comedy by Henry Francis Cary for a pleasant enjoyment of the world's greatest classic.
