Guys how long Divine Comedy is? I have some weird version, it says "exerpts" and its 400-500 pages long, but i counted verses and its ~14000 more or less. Yet in internet they say full version is 1000 pages long (?). Please, could anyone say how long this masterpiece is in full full version, and should i read what i got or throw it in garbage??
It's 14,233 lines, which can be as few as few hundred pages or over a thousand depending on font/spacing/notes/italian inclusion.
isnt Dante pretty judgemental bitch? I doubt he was some sort of saint himself, so how he had right to send all those almost innocent souls to hell?? Even fucking depressed peoples, or neets are damned forever in his book
>turning down Mandelbaum
is wrong with you
>In 2000, Mandelbaum traveled to Florence, Italy, for the 735th anniversary of Dante's birth, and was awarded the Gold Medal of Honor of the City of Florence, in honor of his translation of the Divine Comedy. In 2003, he was awarded The Presidential Prize for Translation from the President of Italy, and received Italy's highest award, the Presidential Cross of the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity. He died in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 2011.
