Written by Dante Alighieri, Dante’s Inferno is a comic novel that tells Dante’s journey as he travels through Hell along with the great Roman poet Virgil. During his journey, Virgil leads Dante through the nine levels of hell. Each level represents the increase of Satan’s bondage and control that he has on the souls. Each level contains the souls of sinners that are categorized on the sin that they have done within their lives. Based on their level the sinners are punished for eternity for the crimes that they have committed.
Within the Second Circle of Hell, the souls of the Lustful swirl about in the wind, swept helplessly through the stormy air. Dante immediately feels sympathy for these souls, because they are basically damned by love. One soul named Francesca, tells to Dante how love was her downfall. Already married, she fell in love with Paolo da Rimini, her husband’s younger brother. One day they could not resist kissing, and Francesca’s husband had the young lovers killed.
Hi Peeps, Today 's Quote “We tend to use fancy words and phrases to describe our insubordinate, deviant, wicked, behaviors, habits, and ideas to sell and use so that we can con others into thinking that breaking the rules is okay.” ~ Jon Barnes Recalcitrance In general, when your life is not going well, you need to get rid of something that is evil in your lifestyle and you must get rid of that behavior too.

Satan is similar to the Monster in a way that he is also alone. Satan is also made in the appearance of God like Adam is. Though the Creature is not made in any image of his creator, he still states, “Many times I considered Satan as the fitter emblem of my condition, for often, like him, when I viewed the bliss of my protectors, the bitter gall of envy rose within me” (Shelley 124). The Monster is able to relate to Lucifer’s relationship with his creator. They are both disturbed and angry for the way they end up becoming.

After reading about each circle of hell and seeing why each sinner deserves the punishment they have been given I have decided that Lucifer’s is the most contrapasso. Contrapasso is when a sinner is given a punishment that is fitting to the sins they committed in life. Lucifer also know as Satan, has the most contrapasso punishment for many reasons. He is known as one of the most evil souls in hell. Of course he wasn’t always like this.
Within the narritive Dante's Inferno, Dante decided to include Classical and Biblical figures to create allusions. Some of these figures include Paola and Francesca, the 12 deciples, Flippo Argenti, Aristotle and even the Christ himslef. Throughout the journey that Dante and Virgil take, they face various obstacles questioning their strength to go further. The allusions that Dante includes help construct the meaning throughout the Canto's by having references to look back on and compare to. For example; Paopla and Francesca with their lovers quarrel, Christ coming down into the underworld to save those who have not committed a sin and is residing in the Noble Castle.
In Inferno, Dante is the main character who is fighting between good and evil, which translates to be the theme of the story. Dante explores deeply the Christian hell and heaven, which includes the immediate Purgatory. This experience makes him cast his allegiance to good and God. The differences between these two stories are depicted when comparing the epic conventions, epic characteristics, and when comparing the various religious backgrounds of the times in which these two stories were written.
In Dante's Inferno, Dante who is main character is getting a tour of hell by his tour guide Virgil. Virgil his tour guide presents to him all the nine levels of hell, including the punishments the sinners must suffer with for all eternity. In the ninth level of hell, the worst sinners are frozen in a giant lake. The sinners are then eaten alive by whom is so called satan. According to Dante, Satan is described as “Than do the giants with those arms of his; consider now how great must that whole, which unto such a part conforms itself… O, what a marvel it appeared to me, when i beheld three faces on his head!
In the Inferno, Dante describes the different levels of hell and the punishment which corresponds to the sin. Dante categorize hell into three major sins consisting of incontinence, violence, and fraudulent. Fraudulent is portrayed as the worse sin in the Inferno while incontinence is seen as a less serious sin. Each category has sinners which have all been punished for their wrong doings in life. The three major sins consist of circles where Dante separates the different sinners.
In Dante’s Inferno, he writes about his journey through hell for the purpose of recognizing his sins. He goes through this journey with Virgil, a voice of reason for Dante. Dante meets people through his journey of the many circles in the Inferno that lead him down into the center of hell, where Satan is. Satan is seen as being monster-like with three heads, representing a mocking of the Trinity and blowing his wings around the cocytus river. The final thing seen here is the fact that Dante’s description of Satan is a bit disappointing compared to the other descriptions he has written about the inferno.
From the beginning of Canto 1 “Inferno”, Dante illustrates his fears by relating it to his perception of good and evil as he has learned from his catholic background. In line 3-6, quote “for I had wondered off from the straight path. How hard it is to tell what it was like…... (the thought of it brings back all my old fears).” (ALIGHIERI) (CANTO 1Ln.3-6) From this quote, the writer instantly introduces his Christian’s believes.
In Dante’s Inferno it also says, “The sinner is the middle, whose feet are sticking out of Lucifer’s mouth, is the worst human sinner of all time: Judas, who betrayed the Son of God… The other two sinners, whose top halves are sticking out of Lucifer’s mouth, are Cassius and Brutus,” (34).This shows who the three biggest sinners were and shows how the punishment is way tougher for them. Since Lucifer flaps his wings eternally and has three faces, Judas, Brutus and Cassius are placed in Satan’s mouth to be chewed on eternally. Dante feels that he has also been betrayed by these sinners so that is the way in which he has those three sinners punished eternally in hell. Dante feels that they should spend an eternity in hell due to the fact that he has been betrayed .
