At dusk on the eve of Good Friday, Dante and Virgil embark on a journey that will lead Dante to Heaven where a contentment with God will be found and his beloved Beatrice awaits. But first, they must pass through the Gate of Hell and enter the underground world of sinners. The living man and his un-dead guide witness a succession of terrible punishments being inflicted on those who led ungodly lives before re-emerging into the world on Easter day. This audio version is a dramatisation of the epic poem starring acclaimed British actors Corin Redgrave, Alex Jennings, Laurie Anderson and Arthur Brown.
