It's all uphill from here

In the increasingly fun battle to find fun and inappropriate things to read to Jude in the evenings there is a new revelation. Yes, it's Dante's Divine Comedy, part two - Purgatory. Reading it quietly to myself never got me more than a third of the way up the mountain, but reading it aloud has helped bring the language (superb translation by Mark Musa) alive, reinvigorated my interest in the story and sent the little one off to sleep. Win!
