The Vision; or, Hell, Purgatory, & Paradise of Dante Alighieri,” translated by Rev. Henry Francis Cary, is the English version of Dante’s “The Divine Comedy.” This epic poem explores the soul’s journey to God through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, guided by the figures of Virgil, Beatrice, and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, representing reason, divine grace, and mysticism, respectively. Originally written in Tuscan dialect, which shaped modern Italian, the three-part poem combines allegory with realism. Cary’s translation captures the essence of Dante’s narrative that intertwines spiritual redemption with literary innovation. Published by D. Appleton and Company in New York of 1865, this 19th-century edition of Dante’s iconic work is enriched by Cary’s scholarly commentary, a chronology of Dante’s life, additional notes, and is illustrated with 12 stunning engravings from designs by John Flaxman.
