Publisher's Summary

In this new edition Musa views Dante's intention as one of cruel and comic commentary on the shallowness and self-pity of his protagonist, who only occasionally glimpses the true nature of love.
"...the explication de texte which accompanies [Musa's] translation is instructively novel, always admirable..." his present work offers English listeners a lengthy appraisal which should figure in future scholarly discussions." (Choice)

Good classic; totally misleading description

Any additional comments?

Great classic if you're looking for it (and you know what you're getting in to—otherwise it may be monotonous). However, Audible's description mentions the author's commentary on the text as being particularly good, but none of it is even included. That's why I bought this! Disappointed. Plus, the narrator really sounds like he's reading—not as good as most of the audiobook readers I'm used to, but acceptable nevertheless.
