Dante`S Inferno Dante's Canto XXVIII Dante begins the opening of Canto XXVIII with a rhetorical question. Virgil and he have just arrived in the Ninth Abyss of the Eighth Circle of hell. In this pouch the Sowers of Discord and Schism are continually wounded by a demon with a sword. Dante poses a question to the reader: Who, even with untrammeled words and many attempts at telling, ever could recount in full the blood and wounds that I now saw? (Lines 1-3) The rhetorical question draws the reader into the passage because we know by this point in the Divine Comedy that Dante is a great poet. What is it that Dante sees before him on the brink of the Ninth Abyss that is so ineffable that he, as ...

Dante's Inferno Dantes Inferno is one of the three parts of his Divine Comedy. The Inferno is divided into thirty-four cantos, each containing a description of a specific region of hell. Sinners in each area are punished for different sins. Sinners of lust suffer in upper hell, sinners of violence in middle hell, and the sinners of fraud in the lowest part of hell. The sufferings of these people are portrayed through Dantes eyes as he descends lower and lower into hell with Virgil, his helper. The punishment for each sinner corresponds to the sin that they committed. In Canto 18, Dante and Virgil travel into the First and Second Pouch of the eighth circle of hell, also called Malebolge. This ...

- Fraud And Its Aftermath - 750 words
Fraud And Its Aftermath In his poem The Divine Comedy. The Inferno, Dante Alighieri gives his audience a clear vivid presentation of what he as a follower of the Christian religion perceives to be hell. Dante shows that human sin is punishable in various degrees of severity and that this is dependent on the nature of ones sinful actions. He sets forth what could very well be the most fully developed Christian understanding of justice on earth, and that is; that what we do as human beings will determine what happens to us in the event of death based on Gods judgment. In writing his poem Dante uses symbolism, allegorism and imagery among other literary effects to place his poem analogically to ...

... In round three of the seventh circle, blasphemers (the violent against God), sodomists (the violent against Nature, the child of God), and usurers (the violent against Art, the child of Nature and thus the grandchild of God) are scalded by rains of fire on a plain of burning sand. (The unnatural rain is a fitting punishment for their unnatural actions.) Dante walks along the banks of a rill flowing across the plain and converses with Ser Brunetto Latini, whose writings Dante greatly admired and from whom he learned numerous literary devices. When the Poets come within hearing distance of the waterfall that lunges from the seventh into the eighth circle, three Florentines rush over to Da ...

- Inferno By Dante And Punishments - 1,051 words
Inferno By Dante And Punishments The Comedy, later renamed The Divine Comedy was written by Dante Alighieri of Florence, Italy. In the early 14th century, while in exile, Dante wrote this epic poem which is broken down into three books. In each book Dante recounts his travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven respectively. The first book of The Divine Comedy, Inferno, is an remarkably brilliant narrative. He narrates his descent into and observation of hell through its numerous circles and rings. One extraordinary way Dante depicted hell is in his descriptions of the various punishments that each group of sinners has received. In a prior college course I took we learned about medieval tort ...

- One Of The Nine Circles Of Hell In The Inferno That I Would Like To Change - 476 words
B. One of the nine circles of hell in The Inferno that I would like to change is the Eighth circle, which is known as Canto XVIII. But before I do, let me introduce and explain briefly on each bolgia. This circle is called Malebolge.The classes of sinners are grouped into ten separate pockets called bolgia. An arching bridge connects each bolgia. The first out of ten bolgia, houses the panderers and the seducers. Horned devils serve as the guardians and lay out the punishments for the sinners. The second bolgia is where the flatters are held and punished. The sinners are to wallow in a floor excrement. The sinners lay upside down in a hole where only their feet stick out with flames engulfin ...
