The Divine Comedy: Inferno

Dante, Dante Alighieri

The first volume of The Divine Comedy-Dante begins his downward journey through the seven circles of Hell. Considered to be one of the greatest literary works of all time, Dante’s immortal drama of a journey through Hell is the first volume of his Divine Comedy. In the Inferno, Virgil guides Dante the pilgrim-poet through the depths of Hell, which is organized by the categories and subcategories of the sinners who dwell there. Dante first encounters the seven deadly sins on his journey-lust, gluttony, avarice, wrath and sloth-and then goes on to encounter even greater wickedness on his downward descent, before finally confronting the evil worm Lucifer, who flaps his wings while gnawing a hole into God’s creation.
