In the early s Dante Alighieri set out to write the three volumes which make the up em The Divine Comedy Purgatorio em is the second volume in this set and opens with Dante the poet picturing Dante the pilgrim coming out of the pit of hell Similar to the em Inferno em cantos this volume is divided into cantos written in tercets groups of lines The English prose is arranged in tercets to facilitate easy correspondence to the verse form of the Italian on the facing page enabling the reader to follow both languages line by line In an effort to capture the peculiarities of Dante s original language this translation strives toward the literal and sheds new light on the shape of the poem Again the text of em Purgatorio em follows Petrocchi s em La Commedia secondo l antica vulgata em but the editor has departed from Petrocchi s readings in a number of cases somewhat larger than in the previous em Inferno em not without consideration of recent critical readings of the em Comedy em by scholars such as Lanza and Sanguineti As before Petrocchi s punctuation has been lightened and American norms have been followed However without any pretensions to being critical the text presented here is electic and being not persuaded of the exclusive authority of any manuscript the editor has felt free to adopt readings from various branches of the stemma One major addition to this second volume is in the notes where is found the em Intercantica em a section for each canto that discusses its relation to the em Inferno em and which will make it easier for the reader to relate the different parts of the em Comedy em as a whole br
