    Original Italian

    I am currently attempting to read this in the original tongue as I wish to study the terza rima as it was first penned and use it myself in my own personal poetry. My Italian is not terribly great, but I was wondering if anyone else out there had tried the same thing or is trying the same thing. Perhaps we might work on it together?

    I've been planning to read Purgotorio around Christmas or so. I can adjust my schedule so that we're reading that at the same time.

    I'm trying to memorize the poem in Italian. My Italian kind of sucks so I should probably work on translation and memory. Whoever gets canto one done first should post there translation with the English below the original and we can talk about it. Whoever finishes canto 2 should do the same etc.
