It's a poem, I believe. An epic.

I've always been intrigued by the book. It sounds very funky indeed, but have never once picked up a copy... The fact that Dante has become a name synomynous with hell (Devil May Cry, anybody?) and the such is quite notable, too.

the divine comedy is fantastic... Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso (Dante's Trips through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven..) Inferno is still my favorite. very heavy reading though... you should try reading the original old italian version... or not... i tried it... and gave up...

Per me si va ne la citta dolente
perme si va ne l'etterno dolore,
per me si va tra la perduta gente.

Giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore;
fecemi la divina podestate,
la somma sapienza e 'l primo amore.

Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create
se non etterne, e io etterno duro
Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate

I don't get why he called his series The Divine Comedy. It's not much of a comedy.........

It is not a comedy in the modern sense of making you laugh, but of the classical sense in that it starts tragically (Inferno) and ends happily (Paradiso).

I picked up a copy of The Divine Comedy yesterday, and I'm up to Inferno IV. Excellent stuff... Thanks for the extra interest inducing nudge towards getting it!
