Some glad tidings

For several years, I have been eagerly awaiting the publication of the Hollander edition of Dante's Paradiso, the third and last canticle of the Divine Comedy. A few days ago I learned that it is scheduled for publication in August of this year. I have the Hollander editions of Inferno and Purgatorio, with their lavish footnotes and commentary, and have spent many happy and challenging hours studying both of them. When the new Paradiso comes out in a few months, my world still might not be complete or perfect, but it will be just a little closer to that ideal.
