Back in November, I made a post about an animated movie of the upcoming video game based on the title of a book by Dante. Well, it seems as if the villainy of Electronic Arts knows no bounds. Vladimir's player, who seems to enjoy inflicting mental anguish upon me, sent along a link to a post about a new edition of Inferno (as translated by Longfellow in 1867, if you can believe it) being published to coincide with the release of the video game. In addition to that atrocious cover, the new edition includes a color insert featuring art from the game and a foreword by its executive producer.
I'd love to believe that this edition might inadvertently open up a few minds to the glories of Dante's poetry, but the cynic in me just doesn't believe it.
