Abandon Hope

Question: “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” (yes,I know that’s a terrible misquote… I’ve never found the correct version, though I know the preceding ain’t it)

Answer: Coming from Canto III, line 9, of Dante’s Inferno, there are bound to be different versions. The original is in Renaissance-era Italian.

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” (forgot whose translation)

“All hope abandon, ye who enter in!” (Longfellow translation)

“Abandon every hope, who enter here” (Mandelbaum translation)

“All hope renounce, ye lost, who enter here.” (Wright translation)
