Dante's Paradiso
by Sandow Birk and Marcus Sanders
 
With the publication of Dante's Paradiso, Sandow Birk and Marcus Sanders complete their literary and artistic achievement the retelling of The Divine Comedy in contemporary words and images. Hailed as "inspired" by the The London Review of Books, Birk and Sanders's adaptation of Dante's classic work is true to the spirit of the original and is as acerbic and shockingly funny today as in thirteenth-century Italy. With a text that incorporates modern slang and references to anachronistically recent public figures, Birk and Sanders pay tribute to Dante's linguistic approach and clever politics. Birk's striking spin on Gustave Doré's famous engravings accompany the cantos. Together they lend the timeless poem a postmodern edge.
