Stories from Dante Told to the Children by Mary Macgregor
This simplified rendition of Dante's Inferno tells the story of the authors adventures in the underworld, and how he came to write the 'Inferno', one of the greatest epic poems in Western Civilization. The story recounts his journey with his guide Virgil, through the nine levels of hell, and finally through purgatory. Some familiarity with Greek mythology, and Renaissance Italy is helpful in understanding these tales, but they are recounted simply and beautifully.
