“The Divine Comedy, written by Dante Alighieri between 1308-1321, is widely considered the central epic poem of the Italian literature, the last great work of literature of the Middle Ages and the first great work of the renaissance, and one of the greatest works of world literature.” [Wikipedia]. Composed of three canticles (Inferno(Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory), and Paradiso (Pardise). Each are composted of 34, 33, and 33 cantos (sections). The first, Inferno is by far the most famous of the three. The poet tells in the first person his travel through the three realms of the dead, lasting during the Easter Triduum in the spring of 1300. His guide through Hell and Purgatory is the Latin poet Virgil, author of The Aeneid, and the guide through Paradise is Beatrice, Dante's ideal of a perfect woman. Beatrice was a real Florentine woman whom he met in childhood and admired from afar in the mode of the then-fashionable courtly love tradition.
