not even close; mandelbaum's translation is horrendous and completely distorts the authors intentions

who would you suggest

This is bait. It's a fantastic translation, just look at what others have to say. I just bought this very version (Everyman's) earlier today after reading some of it online and comparing it to other translations.

Following on this,

"The best crib available is still John D Sinclair's facing-page text from OUP; the best translation of the entire work is Allen Mandelbaum's (published by Everyman). Mandelbaum's is miraculously good: not only does it read like real poetry (although not exactly in the same metre as Dante), it is accurate enough to use as a very reliable crib."

I don't like it very much. It's not very, well, poetic. Read John Ciardi's.

should I get a prose translation if I'm too much of a babbie for poetry or is that too shameful?
