Booking Through Thursday
Here is this week's Booking Through Thursday questions: What are you reading right now? What made you choose it? Are you enjoying? Would you recommend it? (And by all means, discuss everything if you're reading more than one thing!)
At the moment I'm working diligently on Dante's The Divine Comedy II: Purgatory (trans by Dorothy L Sayers). I chose it for several reasons. The complete work has been on my TBR list for a looooooong time. It will help me fulfill several reading challenges (including The Fall Into Reading Challenge hosted by A Chick Who Reads and The Really Old Classics Challenge). The Divine Comedy is a difficult read for me simply because I'm not really into 14th C literature. But the translation is very good and the poetry and imagery are beautiful. So, despite the difficulty, I am enjoying it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the classics or good poetry.
