Shelf Control Wednesdays August 24, 2022

Shelf Control is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. Instead of always looking ahead to upcoming new releases, I thought I’d start a weekly feature focusing on already released books that I want to read. Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available, and in most cases, books that are either on my shelves or on my Kindle!

Title: Inferno

Author: Dante Alighieri, translated by John Ciardi

Published: 2001, 1320 (originally)

Length: 288 pages

Synopsis via Goodreads: Considered to be one of the greatest literary works of all time — equal only to those of Shakespeare — Dante’s immortal drama of a journey through Hell is the first volume of his Divine Comedy.

How I got it: I think that I bought this book in a used book store in Corpus Christi, Texas, where I used to live before moving to Austria.

When I got it: 2016

Why I want to read it: It is such a classic, and is referred to in many situations, that I thought it would be a good idea to give it a read. It wasn’t before now, when I had to copy and paste the Goodreads synopsis that I realized that I only have the first part of the trilogy. I am missing The Purgatorio and The Paradiso. Because of course, all 3 is called The Divine Comedy. Duh Liz. Sigh.
