Inferno (translation in terza rima)

Below are links to a few sample cantos from my translation of the Inferno, the first part of Dante's epic masterpiece, the Divine Comedy. My translation is unique among modern translations of the poem because I have kept Dante's intricate rhyme scheme, known as terza rima (ABA BCB CDC ... YZY Z). Many translators and critics have claimed that a good English translation of the Comedy cannot be done in terza rima, but I am of the opinion that nothing is impossible. Please enjoy these selections from my work. The full translation is not yet published. Please leave a comment on the website or contact me via social media if you have any questions or concerns about my work. Thanks for your support!
