Dante’s fantasy of hell, and his yearning after the Epic Poetry form of Virgil, the Latin poet. Again the magnificent illustrations of Gustav Dore–the actual inspiration for the film. Presented on each of the 76 illustrated first edition plates, a fast-moving condensed version of INFERNO takes place, with a voice speaking the appropriate lines of Dante, according to the Lawrence Grant White English translation.
