The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )

38 editions published between 1932 and 1959 in English and held by 1,809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In middle age Dante realizes he has strayed from the True Way into the Dark Wood of Error, or Wordliness. When he realizes his loss, he looks up to see the first light of the sun, the symbol of divine illumination, lighting the top of a small hill, the Mount of Joy. It is Easter, the time of resurrection and rebirth. These symbols fill Dante with hope and he sets out immediately to climb to the top of Mount Joy. His way is blocked, however, by the Three Beasts of Worldliness--the Leopard of Malice and Fraud, the Lion of violence and ambition, and the She-Wolf of Incntinence--who will drive him back into the darkness of error. When all seems lost, Virgil, Dante's symbol of human reason, to lead him from error. With the easy way to the Mount of Joy blacked, Dante must travel the more difficult way through Hell and Purgatory before reaching the light of God. To help him, Virgil offers Dante another Guide--Beatrice, the symbol of divine love

"Dante's theme is universal. ... The story is an allegory representing the soul's journey from spiritual depths to spiritual heights. As mankind exposes itself, by its merits or demerits, to the rewards or the punishments of justice, it experiences 'Inferno' or hell, 'Purgatorio' or purgatory, and 'Paradiso' or heaven, a vision of a world of beauty, light, and song"--container

8 editions published between 1933 and 1938 in Italian and English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guided by the poet Virgil, Dante plunges to the very depths of Hell and embarks on his arduous journey towards God. Together they descend through the nine circles of the underworld and encounter the tormented souls of the damned - from heretics and pagans to gluttons, criminals and seducers - who tell of their sad fates and predict events still to come in Dante's life. In this first part of his "Divine Comedy", Dante fused satire and humour with intellect and soaring passion to create an immortal Christian allegory of mankind's search for self-knowledge and spiritual enlightenment
