So it Isn't So

From The Atlantic Dante's Inferno as a video game

This is too much. Will we see all the classics turn into electronic games? Why read when you can manipulate characters around a monitor. Perhaps it will be possible to change the endings. If you don't like Tolstoy's ending to Anna Karenina stop the train.

"... some Dante scholars bristle at the liberties the game takes with Dante's story. Then again, maybe those Dante scholars just don't play video games." —Laura Sydell.
