If you’ve already downloaded the first 2 parts, feel free to re-download them, as the final versions are extended, with few mistakes corrected, plus with an enhanced layout.

  16. Awesome..I loved readin this the first time I found it in our local library. now I can re-read it anytime I want. thanks for sharing.

  17. Excellent idea to make this literature available on-line. Many thanks and keep up the very good work.

  18. Thanks for this man! I’ve been interested with world literature lately and this is one of the greatest.

  19. Thank you soo much for doing this I’m doing a paper on this book and our school didn’t have it, and I couldn’t find it anywhere (for cheap) so this really helps.

    adieu~

  28. @JustCheck, Thank you so much. I found another English translation. http://www2.hn.psu.edu/faculty/jmanis/dante/comedy.pdf

    Can you tell us more how you made this happen (create this free ebook, though I am familiar with the Creative Commons license)? Which translation do you prefer? Do you have Twitter where you could be followed? Have you done any other free books?

    Last, to the poster that asked for all 3 books combined. That’s super easy to do. Depending on your PDF program it can combine any pdf for you. Or just google it and you will see what i’m referring to.

  29. Glad you like the books!

    @Great Books Student:
    All pdf’s were created using pure LaTeX, directly with pdflatex. I prefer ViM for editing, as you can not only map keys to commands, but also to input text directly (as if you had many clipboards), e.g. I used Ctrl-v f combination to put in \footnote{. This makes typesetting much easier and faster.

    I don’t have Twitter nor FaceBook.

    There are more e-books I made in the E-books in PDF section. Many more are planned, but the time does not permit so far.

  30. Thank you very much for this resource. I’ve been looking for a digital copy of the comedy for quite some time, and both the quality, and the sometimes helpful footnotes explaining certain aspects of the work are great. Another thing that had me figuratively jumping for joy was the fact that the e-books here have the illustrations, and it makes reading it just that little bit more enjoyable.
    I got interested in it after hearing about the game that EA was bringing out (yes, I do keep up with that kind of news *cringe*), and when I heard what it was about, and did some more research into it, I decided to go straight to the source and read the actual thing. From what I’ve read so far in Inferno I’m glad I did – any game that attempted to do it justice would have to be incredible.
    The time you spent making these was more than likely quite substantial, so I thank you once again for the effort; I really do appreciate it.

    Kind regards and best wishes,

    Jorden

  31. Thank you VERY much. That they aren’t just images but text, makes them easier to use with an e-reader.

  32. you’re epic. thanks so much; worth reading works like these. you did a good work and keep it going.

  33. I am going to subscribe and also share your web site link on Facebook. Your site is easy to navigate and I TOTALLY!!!!!! APPRECIATE!!!!!!!!!YOUR Efforts to put this together. Thank you.

  34. You should sell this on amazon.com for $0.99 on the kindle with the notes added to the text, its hard to find a good copy on there with good footnotes.

  35. thanks for makeing thease e books. i have been looking for awhile for thease books

  43. Thank you so much for this fabulous piece of work. I was unable to download PURGATORIO… and I would love to have it. Thank you!

  44. Bummer, None of the links are working for me. I tried Mozilla and then IE with no luck. Anything change here with the new year??

  45. Hi Brent, thanks for leaving me a note!
    Yes, quite a lot has changed; among other things, I’ve changed hosting (from shared I moved to unmanaged VPS)… along the way, I misconfigured the server, and www. was pointing to wiki., that’s why you didn’t get to download the files.
    It’s working now.
    Sorry to all who tried and failed!

  46. Loved that u uploaded these! Been looking for these since i was in junior high! Thank you! Would it be possible for u to upload Milton’s Paradise Lost? If so I would love u so much lol. Please keep doing that voodoo that u do so very well!

  73. Thank you so much! Have been wanting to read Divine comedy since long. The illustrations in them are brilliant! Awesome job! :)

  74. Very nicely done! You either have a streak of compulsive perfectionism like me, or an artistic bent. Either way, the care put into every detail could serve as a lesson even for some professional publishing companies. The only thing missing were bookmarks, though the table of contents is easy enough to locate. Nevertheless, I couldn’t resist adding bookmarks for each canto…

  75. Thanks for taking the time to create these eBooks. Great Job!!

  76. Just read Inferno by Dan Brown, and was inspired into reading the whole of Divine Comedy. Just got what i needed here. Thanks a ton..! Try uploading more books..!

  77. You sir, are a very brilliant man of art. Thank you for sharing these famous works of art in the digital age. Hats off to you.

  79. Thanks a ton!! Just noe completed dan brown’s Inferno and had an irresistible urge to read the Divine Comedy. Thanks for the help!

  80. Hi, I just downloaded the three volumes (in fact, two are in progress). Did a casual check on Inferno. The presentation is very good, and I particularly like the footnotes being available on the same page and that too, for for Longfellow’s translation and with Gustave’s illustration to boot!. From a reader perspective, it is very user friendly. I am sure I would enjoy reading it. Thank you very much for all your efforts!

  81. Grazie mille, mille, mille. I googled for the Divine Comedy and yours was the first web link I chose. Bellisimo. Surely Virgil had guided my hand. Your passage to Paradiso is assured. We are all enriched by your exacting efforts. Truly, my deepest thanks for this gift.

  82. Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks Thanks and lots Thanks. :)

  83. Thx u very much..i just finished reading inferno and i felt i must read divine comedy

  85. As they say history repeats itself or reveals the hidden future, so the availability to read such a critical piece of history is amazing. This one piece of written artwork has been a inspiration for so many of histories past art majors michalangelo to leonardi from oils to written to clay & sculture. So thank you in this day of age of fast and instant technology for taking the time and having the patience to share this amazing work with us. To read,save,download or print and not take the time to spend 30 seconds to express graditude would be rude. Thank you again for sharing and please continue to do so. :

  86. Thank you very much. It’s a fast download, very easy on eye, professional, complete in it’s fuss-note, and even I am not someone who is into e-books when comes to belletristic, your approach might change my mind. I enjoyed reading it. Thank you once more and all the best.

  90. Thank you so much for putting these together for us. I made a resolution to read the classics, but being disabled, I don’t have the money to buy books or the ability to go to the library. Finding files like these is like gold to me, ever precious, and always increasing in value. God Bless you.
