The Divine Comedy in plain and simple English
This volume contains the original translation which is difficult to read and understand. The simplified translation appears within it in three line blocks. However, this simplified language is not that plain and simple. It follows closely the cadence of the original translation. It did help understanding, but it did not take the next step of using contemporary English. Also, typographical errors increased as you progressed toward the end.
