Book Beginnings

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do or do not like the sentence. Here's my latest:

The Divine Comedy II: Purgatory by Dante Alighieri (trans Dorothy L Sayers)

For better waters heading with the wind
My ship of genius now shakes out her sail
And leaves that ocean of despair behind;

For to the second realm I tune my tale,
Where human spirits purge themselves, and train
To leap up into joy celestial.
