Dante pretty much invented modern fiction. The Comedy presents characters as products of a specific time, place and circumstance as opposed to archetypes or representations of a vice or virtue. And it all takes place in a precisely designed fictional environment.

I'm sure it wasn't Dante's intention, but sadly the biggest cultural impact of his book [in the English-speaking world] was to help perpetuate the notion of hell which the Gnostics brought into Christianity. [Hopefully Dante has a better legacy outside of the English-speaking world]

I read these on my own when I was in high school. I remember a couple of kids in biology class (I often read in class because I finished the work very fast) thought it was cool until they looked at the prose and didn't understand any of it, then they thought I was crazy. XD I would rate them as Inferno, Paradiso, Purgatorio as far as how interesting they were. Being a Devil May Cry fan though I get some mental hiccups when they say Dante and Virgil in this Video. XD Reading it isn't bad though because Capcom spelled their Vergil with an "e" and in the poem it's the classic "I" spelling, Virgil. So I could never listen to these books on audio anymore, but reading is no problem. The Barnes and Nobel copies I have have great context notes at the end as well. Very very helpful.

Dante saw Islam as a heretical interpretation of Christianity that aggravated East-West antagonisms. A sword-bearing devil slashes open the Prophet’s wound whenever it heals itself. Cut from top to the bottom of his body, with most internal organs hanging out. Thus the dividers of humanity are themselves divided Dante's inferno

This made me so happy - Dante's Diving Comedy is a beautiful depiction of earthy and divine Love and they did such a good job with this episode. Also I'm so glad he recited the beginning in Italian; I memorized that in 9th grade and still remember it. I still have my old books with Henry Longfellow's sonnets written on the front and back flaps.

Catherine and yourself were absolutely enthralling in your short journey through Dantes Divine Comedy. I understood this masterpiece to have been created for the following reasons, 1) To create a most perfect and beautiful language ( Italian)able to communicate profound conceptions regarding Man , Nature and God. The vulgate was not cohesive and beautiful but this new and improved version was as close as you can get. 2 ) In the process imparting all of the extent knowledge and wisdom to his countrymen so as to create a “Rennacimento”. 3) Lead us all to the triune. God. Please pardon my Italian spelling.

As soon as you began talking about Dante, I thought of Milton -- because he, too, was a great poet who was sidelined for being on the wrong side of politics. While I prefer Paradise Lost to Inferno, I do admire Dante, and I very much enjoyed your enthusiastic discussion. As for what Adam spoke in the Garden, my immediate response was, "Old Solar, of course." (A reference that only makes sense if you've read C.S. Lewis's space trilogy.) But another great program. I'm a writer and educator, and aside from loving your point of view, I also appreciate your promotion of reading.

And this is the problem with the Catholic teaching on the subject of purgatory, where you can earn your salvation. Here is what the Bible says on the subject: Eph2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [h]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

I have a serious question for aficionados of early literature: Have there been any prose translations into English of Dante's Divine Comedy, Homer's Odyssey, or Virgil's Aeneid? Not to scandalized anyone, but I have a hard time reading short, unrhymed lines while simultaneously trying to maintain an understanding of the tale. Since a translation is not as the work was intended to be read in the first place, anyway, prose translations of these, from prior to 1900 (in order to get at least some flavor of an earlier style) if they exist, would fulfill a long quest of mine. Thank you for any help.

I have an alternative suggestion. There is a certain multi-trillion dollar organisation that sells audio versions of most of the great classics. Since poetry is meant to be heard, I always find audio versions most plalatable.

My favorite phrase from Paradiso is "That sun which first warmed my breast with love had discovered to me, through proof and refutation, fair truth's sweet aspect, and I moved my head, but not higher than need for speech, to find myself corrected and assured." I used that phrase in an art show I had in 1997. Credit duly given to Dante and also the translator John Sinclair. It's so nice to hear you talk about this amazing book. Also another great book is Vita Nuova, which I learned about from the book The Body of Beatrice.

This is the most important post you will ever read. Every one of us has broken God’s moral law, the Ten Commandments. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken God’s name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers. James 2 : 10 also states that breaking even just one commandment makes us guilty of breaking them all. The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good deeds because The Creator is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, EVERY sin will be brought to light, and punished. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ left his throne in heaven and came to this earth. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved. Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake. Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’.. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he conquered death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace; Except a gift can either be accepted or rejected..So this is what you must do in response; Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him, and through gratitude in the sacrifice of his son, repent (turn away) from your old way of life. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, your savior, and the ruler of your life from this moment forward (Romans 10:9). Do these things, and you will be saved. If you sincerely do so, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin. Also, he will grant you eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God has in store for believers in the afterlife. You’ve been informed; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you spend ETERNITY, meaning, this is the single most Critical decision you will EVER make; And all of us here, whether believer or atheist, know deep down that every last word here is true. Jesus Christ is awaiting YOU this very moment; don’t even think about sleeping tonight until you surrender your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.. And as it is written (Hebrews 9 : 27); ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’. All glory, honor and praise to Lord Jesus Christ. www.amazon.com/dp/1432117742/ref=emc_b_5_mob_i

@Danielle Smoker Haha, this'll get ya... Just had family from out of town this past week. One of 'em had a book called "SAINT'S WHO'VE SEEN HELL", or maybe "Saint's Visions Of Hell". (The title was SOMETHING like that.). Now I wish I'd have taken a look at it at the time.

@Danielle Smoker COOL, thanks! I always suspected it might be the case with ironic punishments. Never thought to do any ACTUAL research in the matter. I love how the idea is used in popular culture today. Hey... If I was God... that's how I'D set things up! Don't have an informed opinion on the other point you made. I DO know there were at least a few screwballs in Dante's time who believed he ACTUALLY made the journey he wrote about. Wish I could remember the source to give you about it.
Danielle Smoker
Danielle Smoker Сарын өмнө
@Lawr 57 This actually supported by the literary community. As you probably know, in modern pop culture, irony in hell is common. However, many scholars agree that this idea originated in Dantes inferno. Some also suggest that Dante was one of the first scholars to popularize purgatory among Catholics.

I learned a lot. Thanks for the fantastic discussion. But since you claimed that this is the greatest piece of literature/art ever. I would highly,highly recommend that you check out "Mahabharat". The original text is in Sanskrit so that maybe a handicap but you can read the translated versions which are available by the dozen. Bibek Debroy's 10 volume translation is one of the best. The whole text juggles between more than 200 characters,all of them well chalked out,in a coherent manner and completely written in prose. The famous "Bhagvad Gita" is a part of this text so there is enough and more philosophy too.
