Not unlike, The Aeneid and Confessions, Inferno provides the reader a retrospective look at how one can travel from a dark place to one of enlightenment. The reader is able to experience a parallel between Augustine’s and Dante’s spiritual path of trying to find their way through and to reform from worldly error. Augustine states, “I had no wish to read further, and no need . . .
According to Dante, “therefore look carefully; you’ll see such things/as would deprive my speech of all belief” (Alighieri, Dante. 1854). Unlike in Odysseus, Dante’s courage doesn’t involve utmost physical feats. Dante depicts courage in analyzing his inner strength. A vast setting includes hell in Inferno, Purgatory and heaven.
Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature. Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.
Dante’s word choice here actually puts the reader into the story because of their ability to hear the sinners’ agony.

The first class, the evil impersonators, must run for all eternity while chased by the furies. One of the sinners begins to “bark and growl like a dog” throughout the “mad seizure of her misery” (30.20-21).

For instance, Dante is metaphorically depicted as a poet in the Purgatono. This outlines the relationship between the two, where Dante leaves the cruel sea which is hell and journeys to the waters that are better.

People use irony in their everyday life even if they overlook it. Irony is the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning. In The Tragedy of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, irony is used so Mark Antony can achieve his goal safely. Irony is used indirectly by persuading the audience, using dramatic irony, and with Caesars good will. First of all, Shakespeare uses verbal irony so Mark Antony can persuade his audience.
This purpose has dragged Grendel down an abyss of violence and brutality where the only spark of life was given by the act of eating the victims of a massacre until the threshold of tolerance was so high that Grendel found himself even more alone. This feeling of loneliness is broken by Beowulf’s arrival and eventually by Grendel’s death that ease the pain of trying to understand the functioning of the world and the universe, something that is designed by nature to overwhelm us when we try to analyse it and leave us amazed or depressed.
