More > love and of another of his works, La Vita Nuova. While the vision of Hell, the Inferno, is vivid for modern readers, the theological niceties presented in the other books require a certain amount of patience and knowledge to appreciate. Purgatorio, the most lyrical and human of the three, also has the most poets in it; Paradiso, the most heavily theological, Furthermore, the word "comedy" in the classical sense refers to works which reflect belief in an ordered universe, in which events tended toward not only a happy or amusing ending but one influenced by a Providential will that orders all things to an ultimate good. By this meaning of the word, as Dante himself wrote in a letter to Cangrande I della Scala, the progression of the pilgrimage from Hell to Paradise and ends with the vision of God.< Less

Purgatorio, the most lyrical and human of the three, also has the most poets in it; Paradiso, the most heavily theological, has the most beautiful and ecstatic mystic passages in which Dante tries to describe what he confesses he is unable to convey (e.g., when Dante looks into the face of God: "all'alta fantasia qui mancò possa" — "at this high moment, ability failed my capacity to describe," Paradiso, XXXIII, 142).With its seriousness of purpose, its literary stature and the range — both stylistically and subjectwise—of its content, the Comedy soon became a cornerstone in Italian..< Less
The Banquet By Dante Alighieri

Between 1304 and 1307 Dante wrote Convivio, or "The Banquet," a philosophical essay which is part poetry and part prose. It is in four parts, or treatises, and is unfinished. It is the... More > record of Dante's thirty months of study in the fields of philosophy, ethics, politics and metaphysics. Dante outlines the origin of his love of philosophy, tracing a love of knowledge to its manifestation as a love of God. The "Banquet" in question here is Dante's offering: a banquet philosophical insight and wisdom. The guests are those who are hungry for knowledge but are too entrenched in politics to pursue it. Hence why Dante wrote "The Banquet" in Italian (as opposed to Latin), so that the average man could understand it. To extend the metaphor, Dante means for the poetry to represent the entree of a meal, while the prose serves as the bread. Buon appetito!< Less

The Divine Comedy By Dante Alighieri
eBook (PDF): $2.99
The Divine Comedy is an epic poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature and is seen... More > as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church by the 14th century. It helped establish the Tuscan language, in which it is written, as the standardized Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise or Heaven; but at a deeper level, it represents, allegorically, the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially Thomistic philosophy and the Summa Theological of Thomas Aquinas. Consequently, the Divine Comedy has been called "the Summa in verse".< Less
