It has been quite a long time since my last post for Wishful Wednesday! But today, there is one particular book that I have been craving for….
The Divine Comedy
By Dante Alighieri
Lately I have read the first part of The Divine Comedy: Inferno from my e-reader. Although I got through it quite difficultly, still I was interested in it. Following Inferno, I grabbed The Dante Club (a historical fiction by Matthew Pearl, a psycho-thriller based on the translation project of Dante’s Inferno by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow). I think it is this latter book that has brought my full interest in Dante. I feel that in the second (or third) reading, I would understand and appreciate Inferno more. And now, I’m determined to read the rest of The Divine Comedy: Purgatorio and Paradiso. I might still read from e-reader, but I really dream on having the physical book, as I suspect, I would be reading this one more than once.
But why the above particular edition? Because it is leather bound hardback with a beautiful cover!! I really wish I could win a giveaway to buy this book. Or…anyone would like to send me one copy for next Christmas? ;)
