Listening to Robert Pinsky read his translation of Dante's Inferno...
Most notable moments:
- Frederick II's chancellor in the wood of suicides
- Brunetto Latini in the desert of raining fire: "not the loser, but the winner..."
- Farinata degli Uberti: "That news pains me more..."
- "Perhaps you did not think that I was a logician?..."
- "Vexilla prodeunt regis inferni..."
The fourteen-year-old says that Pinsky talks way too fast for the poem. I agree.
