Favorite all time series. I have studied Dante's Comedy for years. I do wish all readers of the Inferno would also read through both Purgatory and Paradise at least once. The color and imagery are so beautiful. As is the poetry. Inferno of course is the most read of the three. I have to admit it is my favorite too. It is scary and enthralling and captivating. And I learn a lot about mythology and history every time I read it.
Not sure why I like this one so much, but it seems to be one of those books that just captures people's attention. Somehow, it's probably the most interesting portion of his Divine Comedy. Looking at his perspective is intriguing.
