Dante’s vision of Hell is incredibly structured, with levels and sublevels dictating certain punishments for certain sins. The least of the sins is being unbaptized; pagan; or being virtuous, but before Christianity arose. This circle is called Limbo, and it is like Heaven, only slightly less glamorous. The worst of the sins is betrayal and treachery, and these sinners are trapped in the Ninth Circle of Hell, called Treachery. The worst sinner according to Dante is Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus.
The Inferno Dante Alighieri’s “The Inferno” is one of the most intricate pieces ever written. This divine poem is arguably one of the most well known stories in literature. This “ Divine Comedy” uses symbolism and a vivid use of imagery to clearly depict what Dante imagines the circles of hell to be like. Dante was able to incorporate references from the bible, greek mythology, renaissance, and even includes christianity. Dante reveals the true meaning of the Inferno through his leading motif, his interactions between the sinners, and the intertwining of other literary works into the Inferno.
The Evil of Greed in Inferno and Heart of Darkness Though Conrad and Dante wrote their pieces centuries apart, Heart of Darkness and Inferno have striking similarities that readers cannot ignore. Both writers have rather bleak and downcast portrayals of humans and their propensity towards evil. In particular, both texts specifically examine the characteristic of greed in human behavior. Conrad and Dante are both quick to highlight the dangers of greed and the impact it has on the individual’s soul. Conrad goes further to describe the damage that is wrought on others when someone is greedy, while Dante depicts in graphic clarity the punishment that the greedy have to endure in the afterlife.
Dante’s Inferno is filled with imagery of suffering, which is oftentimes caused by famous creatures alluded to from mythology or history. In addition, many of the higher circles of Dante’s hell hold enough punishment without the presence of these creatures. Through an analysis of the Cantos populated by beasts and the Cantos that are not, we can speculate on the reasoning for the contrast in punishment. In the earlier Cantos, various beasts and demons populated the lower circles of hell. For instance, characters such as Minos, Cerberus, and Plutus stand at each gate to torment the shades trapped there.
Dante put them in the Inferno rather than in Purgatorio, he pities the souls that commited suicide, and he gives the souls what they wanted in life and through death. He also is intelligent and thinks a lot about things that are beyond human comprehension which can make a human feel small, helpless, insignificant, and suicidal. All three of these points help to support the idea that Dante had suicidal tendencies and thoughts. Dante had to make a decision or opinion on what happens to those who kill themselves. He decided that they would go to hell.
It had a castle with seven gates, each gate represents a virtue in the Bible, “Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness and Humility”. In there Dante finds Homer, Julius Caesar, Cicero, Socrates, Hippocrates and Aristotle. They are not really punished, they simply live in The second circle is “Lust”, in it Virgil and Dante find people punished for the sin of Lust, their punishment is to be blown back and forth with strong wind permanently, without rest or peace. The strong wind could symbolize the eternal restlessness which an individual goes through when they are moved by desire for fleshly deeds. Also, there Dante sees a number of famous or infamous individuals from history and mythology like Cleopatra, Helen of Troy among other persons who committed adultery in their
For instance , Dante says“ Cerberus , monster cruel and uncouth , with his three gullets like a dog is barking over people that submerged “ ( Canto 6 line 15 ) . Since Cerberus was a glutton he is equal a fitting to the punishment. Moreover , in the third circle rain is always falling. The gluttons are forced to live in comfortable surroundings. For example , Dante said “ In the third circle am I rain Eternal
For example, in The Inferno, Dante's entire story centered on an allegorical journey, made by a fictional version of himself, into the depths of hell. In turn, that journey detailed the various punishments ascribed by God for all sorts of sins and sinful acts and utilized references to numerous historical figures to embellish his storyline. One example of a historical figure’s presence was readily evident in The Inferno, in that the travel companion of the fictional Dante was Virgil. In many ways, the author Virgil was also a literal guide for the poet Dante because he revered the work of Virgil. In many ways, Dante sought to place himself on the same level as or above Virgil.
While reading Dante’s Inferno, the reader experiences that Dante was unaware that he was redirected from a righteous path, “Midway along the journey of our life I woke to find myself in a dark wood, for I had wandered off from the straight path” (Puchner et al. 1600). Dante’s narrative commences during a period when he, akin to Augustus, appreciates their naïve errs and look towards gratifying a doctrine while taking the reader through his conflict.
