'Inferno' è il titolo del quarto romanzo di Dan Brown che ha per protagonista il Professore di Harvard Robert Langdon. Ancora una volta, lo scrittore statunitense proveniente dal New Hampshire, mescola sapientemente le tematiche a lui più congeniali, dando vita ad un thriller dai risvolti misteriosi in cui arte, storia, codici e simboli fanno da padroni. Il docente di Simbologia di Harvard Robert Langdon è di nuovo in Italia. Questa volta si reca nel bel Paese per svolgere delle ricerche sulla 'Divina Commedia' di Dante. Langdon viene risucchiato in un mondo sconvolgente la cui chiave di volta sembra risiedere nel capolavoro del Sommo Poeta, un'opera dai risvolti misteriosi ed oscuri, le cui parole sono pregne di un fascino in grado di travalicare i secoli. Langdon, nel tentativo di risolvere l'enigma in grado di condurlo alla verità, dovrà vedersela con un avversario temibile. Lo scenario in cui si svolge questa nuova avventura avente per protagonista Robert Langdon è caratterizzato dallo splendore dell'arte classica. Il nostro eroe per giungere alla risoluzione del mistero passerà attraverso gli arcani nascosti nelle opere d'arte, individuerà passaggi segreti e, per non far mancare nulla, usufruirà di strumenti scientifici all'avanguardia.

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.” — from Invisible Cities In a garden sit the aged Kublai Khan and the young Marco Polo — Mongol emperor and Venetian traveler. Kublai Khan has sensed the end of his empire coming soon. Marco Polo diverts his host with stories of the cities he has seen in his travels around the empire: cities and memory, cities and desire, cities and designs, cities and the dead, cities and the sky, trading cities, hidden cities. As Marco Polo unspools his tales, the emperor detects these fantastic places are more than they appear. “Invisible Cities changed the way we read and what is possible in the balance between poetry and prose . . . The book I would choose as pillow and plate, alone on a desert island.” — Jeanette Winterson

A veteran’s moment of rage leads to a chase through the bayou in this tale of “jackhammer suspense” by the New York Times–bestselling author of Swan Song (Kirkus Reviews). Two decades after he finished serving his country in the jungles of Southeast Asia, Dan Lambert still pays the price. As he hustles for construction work in the heat of a brutal Louisiana summer, Dan tries to ignore the pounding in his head—a constant reminder of the Agent Orange–caused leukemia which will soon end his life. And now the bank wants to repossess his truck. His attempt to reason with the loan officer does not get him far. Dan loses himself in rage, and for a moment is back in the jungle again. When he comes out of his bloodlust, he has shot the banker through the chest. There is nothing to do but run. On his trail are two peculiar bounty hunters: a onetime Siamese twin and a heavyset Elvis impersonator. To save his own life, Dan is going to have to remember why it was worth living in the first place.

Depending on the translation, The Divine Comedy will present completely different facets to the reader, therefore we have united these 3 Classic Unabridged Translations in one eBook: Cary's + Longfellow's + Norton's Translation + the Original Illustrations by Gustave Doré, in order to present the very best of The Divine Comedy. This epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between c. 1308 and his death in 1321 is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The Divine Comedy serves as the physical (scientific), political, and spiritual guidebook of Dante's Fourteenth Century universe. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church. It helped establish the Tuscan dialect, in which it is written, as the standardized Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven; but at a deeper level, it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially Thomistic philosophy and the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas. Consequently, the Divine Comedy has been called "the Summa in verse".
