Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a work of profound satiric fury" and by Bookpage as "funny and deeply affecting," Birk and Sanders' masterwork is now available for the first time in a substantial and sumptuous slip cased set. The pair's innovative and authentic adaptation of Dante's epic, coupled with Birk's striking play on Gustave Dore's classic illustrations, make this a Divine Comedy for the 21st century. Acclaimed by both the literary and art worlds; rife with contemporary turns of phrase and slang (just as the original poem was written in the vernacular of its day) and pointed visions of the afterlife as contemporary cities; and rich with bold allusion, cultural critique, and witt his is the must-have collection of modern classics.
Dante is a hard-living hoodie-clad slacker who will take you on a gritty tour of Hell that bears a disturbing resemblance to our own world. In an attempt to save his lost soul, Dante is led through the seven rings of Hell. Based upon Sandow Birk & Marcus Sanders' adaptation of "Dante's inferno."
