Lucifer’s suffering is most appropriate by far, along with the suffering of Brutus, Cassius, and Judas. No matter where we go when death takes over, most people forbid to go to Hell. After reading The Inferno, Dante makes it clear that any sin can suffer greatly. Eternal punishment is not wanted, and the story does make that clear. Out of all the levels I got to experience with Dante and each punishment that came with it, I believe Lucifer’s contrapasso was the worse.
Gauging Evil Do you remember that time you offered to give your sibling something in exchange for them keeping their mouth shut about something they saw you do? That small fraudulent act would land you right down in Circle Eight, Bolgia Five of Hell in Dante’s Inferno. Now that may seem like severe over punishment, but it has it's reason. In The Inferno by Dante Alighieri sinners are placed in concentric rings all approaching the center of Hell. The rings are ordered not by the severity of the crime, but by the darkness of the heart of the sinner.
There are several things in each circle that prove the theme of divine retribution. Some examples would include the Second Circle (Lust), the Third Circle (Gluttony), the Fifth Circle (Anger), the Seventh Circle (Violence), and the Eighth Circle (Fraud). Dante attempts to punish people in hell according to the sins they committed on Earth. While reading Dante’s Inferno readers must understand that none of the sinners are innocent. “By this way no good spirit ever passes” (“Commedia: Inferno”).

This shows American Romanticism because the main character died with the veil on and never took it off, now that's pretty exaggerating to keep it on until the end of your life. Another way this story can show American Romanticism is because the minister is trying to hide all the sinners of the world by wearing the black veil. Everyone has sinned so that the veil should be on everyone's face because everyone has sinned and should wear it like he does. Mr. Hooper is one of the characters that shows
Dante believed the most serious sins and acts of man dealt with fraud and betrayal. He reasoned that these sinners deserved the most crucial punishments Hell must offer. Therefore, the sinners in the deeper parts of Hell, sent to circles seven and eight, included those who caused religious conflict in
After listening to such violent repercussions, Tituba admits that she “don 't desire to work for him”(44) though implying contact between the Devil and herself. In spite of fear, Tituba openly admits to being controlled by the Devil, reassuring the prevalence of the Devil in Salem. Being the first character to openly admit to being associated with the Devil, this significantly exemplifies the fear and uncertainty within the townspeople, thus continually augmenting the Devil’s authority over society. As the ferocious argument between Parris, Putnam, and Abigail lingers, Tituba conveys a message “sent by the Devil” explaining his severe hatred toward Parris who “must be kill[ed]! Mr. Parris no goodly... man, and he bid me rise out of my bed and
Self-interest is something all humans are born with and often synonymous to the seven deadly sins. The main reason religions exist are to judge evil and decide what punishment shall be ruled out to evil-doers. Of course with any man made system there is bound to be flaws. Group polarization occurs when individuals assemble together and their decisions and actions become increasingly extreme.
When thinking of life choices would one see themselves being punished for their decisions or does one assume the afterlife will be forgiving? The Divine Comedy: Inferno, written by Dante Alighieri, depicts the flaws of politics and the Holy Roman Catholic Church. The papal authorities are corrupt and the church is not following its own rules. Dante, the protagonist, goes on a journey through the nine levels of hell. He starts out feeling pity for the souls, and as he makes his journey down into the levels of hell, he starts to realize that the acts the people committed are sinful and they deserve the punishments they receive.
