Ariosto'S Orlando Furioso Even in the classics, an author must have something outrageous to keep his reader's attention.

- Candide Voltaires Writing Style - 1,150 words
Candide - Voltaire's Writing Style In Candide, Voltaire uses many writing techniques which can also be found in the works of Cervantes, Alighieri, Rabelais and Moliere. The use of the various styles and conventions shows that, despite the passage of centuries and the language differences, certain writing techniques will always be effective. One common literary technique is the author's use of one or more of his characters as his 'voice' to speak out the authors views on a certain subject. For instance, in Moliere's Tartuffe, the author uses the character of Cleante to speak out against religious hypocrites (page 1419, lines 99-102): Nothing that I more cherish and admire Than honest zeal and ...

- Dante - 879 words
Dante Dante the Pilgrim was once a spiritual and holy man, but as of recently he had felt less than holy. Yet, he still wants to remain spiritual.

- Dantes Inferno - 1,469 words
Dante's Inferno What Dante Gains By Going Through Hell The Inferno is a work full of imagery that describes the horrors of hell through the words of the author. What does Dante gain by all of this by taking himself through such an experience? I believe Dante gains three elements of life. The character Dante gains two of these and they are confidence and a clarification of his faith. The author Dante gains the last element, which is a release from his own personal hell of isolation. In the beginning, we see Dante as a somewhat scared and untrusting individual. He questions his worthiness and purpose several times. As Virgil leads Dante though hell, Dante becomes less scared and more trusting ...

- Dantes Inferno - 1,125 words
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 ...

- Edmund Spenser Vs Virgil And Ariosto - 1,825 words
Edmund Spenser Vs. Virgil And Ariosto Edmund Spenser vs. Virgil and Ariosto Some scholars believe Spenser did not have sufficient education to compose a work with as much complexity as The Faerie Queene, while others are still "extolling him as one of the most learned men of his time" (587). Scholar Douglas Bush agrees, "scholars now speak less certainly that they once did of his familiarity with ancient literature" (587). In contrast, Meritt Hughes "finds no evidence that Spenser derived any element of his poetry from any Greek Romance" (587). Several questions still remain unanswered: Was Edmund Spenser as "divinely inspired" to write The Faerie Queene as Virgil and Ariosto were in their w ...

- 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 ...
