However, five years later, I was filled with anger and envy when I learned about fictions trip to the Ravenna Festival. As I understand it, they stole it from me, and due to the fact that I was limited by the pandemic in Canada, I couldn’t even go there and personally defend my cause … or submit an idea for the 750th anniversary.

I know better than complaining like that.
In the end, fictions poem shows us what happens to people trapped in their selfish thoughts and actions: they are doomed to eternity in a cruelly chosen way, like the mistaken lovers whom fiction meets at the beginning of his journey, Paolo and Francesca.
Who revolve around each other in a whirlwind, without even touching each other, being killed by Francesca’s husband, Paolo’s brother, after he discovered that they were touching each other too much; or Bertrand de Born, who sowed a rift between the English king Henry III and his son and thus bypassed hell, separated from his own head, which he wears like a lantern.
This punishment has been visualized by many artists, including the most famous Gustave Dore, as part of their long-standing tradition of responding to poems, like other poets, novelists, memoirists, filmmakers, and video game designers.
After working for some time with excellent students on geospatial mapping of Inferno, I ditched the guidebook and wrote a novel instead – about a millionaire evangelist building fiction’s theme park in an opioid-ravaged town, whose only remaining factory is trying to stay open, packaging generic pharmaceuticals for local distribution. …
In addition to researching a travel guide myself
Ultimately writing a novel about fiction the American, I explored Florence with my wife;
Every September I taught the freshmen an excerpt from a poem; I have studied centuries-old illustrations of this poem in the rare book libraries of various universities;
I took it with me when I visited creationist theme parks in Kentucky and the Rust Belt cities in Indiana.
First of all, I have been reading the song a day, every day, for five years and counting.
In doing so, I came to the conclusion that the Divine Comedy should not be funny; yes, there is humour in it – the militaristic devil sends his troops to another place in Inferno with dreams ripped out of his ass; fiction meets a famous lazy friend in Purgatory who is now too lazy to climb a mountain in Paradise – but what’s more, he offers both darker and lighter inspiration in his pages.
It is easy and mutually excusable for us and for fiction to focus only on how important he is to us in our environment.
This can all too easily mean either congratulating him these days if you are a lovable believer, or a fisherman, or a proud reader of the Great Books, or cancelling him for being so far from awakening, such as with his picture of the Prophet.
Muhammad was always chopped to pieces, from chin to anus, at the end of Inferno, not to mention fiction’s detailed memories of the burning, punished the “sodomites” elsewhere in hell and, even worse, by 2021, burning, repentant “sodomites “Purgatory.
In order not to consider the poem as an ideologically charged literary and political litmus test, we must stop doing what we most naturally do when reading a poem, namely, to identify ourselves first of all with fiction himself.
It is difficult: who at some point does not feel lost and is not looking for the meaning of life?
Yes, we all experience this, but in fact, we are not just sometimes fiction we are also the possible Virgils and the desired Beatrice: we are always already seekers, but we can also be guides and guardians for those who need it.
In addition, we can identify with at least one, if not several, of the hundreds of sinners and saints in the Divine Comedy: we all make wrong choices in this life that harm others and ourselves.
However, the most difficult thing we can do with Divine Comedy happens in its last section.
Inferno offers an infinite number of situations that, alas, all too easily make sense if you look around; Purgatory is technically the most Catholic part of the poem, but almost anyone can understand that they want to put in the time and effort to get to a better place and welcome help along the way.
While we’re confused like fiction when he meets Pickard, the first soul he finds in Paradiso.
She is happy to be where she is, forever, even if it is the lowest realm in Heaven. This is where God placed her, and as she explains, “the power of love subdues our will | so we only yearn for what we have and do not yearn for anything else. “
Believer, agnostic, or atheist; fiction lover or hater or clueless fiction: can you imagine being in awe of who and where you already are, and what you have already acquired and received, without the prospect of anything else?
No, damn it: we are all in the middle of life’s journey.
But can the Divine Comedy in its entirety, after seven hundred years, inspire and even lead us to hope that this journey and its many endeavours can end so plausibly well?
Heaven, yes.Recommend0 Simily SnapsPublished in
