The “Inferno” is a story written by Dante Alighieri, about his spiritual journey through the circles of hell, with the help of his companion Virgil as his guide. Through the journey, they visit a total of nine circles; where they encounter many monsters. The characteristics Dante attribute to those monsters are drawn from classical Greek and Roman mythological creatures. They meet such mythical monsters like Minos in the second circle, Cerberus in the third circle and Minotaur in the seventh circle. Dante uses allegories or extended metaphors (“Topic: Allegory”), to illustrate those monsters he encounters throughout the journey as an instrument of punishment and symbol for sins based on their mythological history, in a way that Minos symbolize justice, Minotaur a symbol of violence in a form of self-punishment and Cerberus as an allegory of gluttony sin.

While he was away, the Black Guelfs completely took over Florence, and so Dante was exiled from his native city for the rest of his life. While in exile, he writes the Divine Comedy, Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise, and completed the Inferno in 1314. The poem follows Dante after he strays off the path of moral truth and gets lost in the dark woods. In the woods, Dante is greeted by three beasts; Virgil saves him from them and becomes his guide through hell. In hell, Dante has the opportunity to speak with multiple sinners within the nine circles.
Starting in 1308, Dante Alighieri wrote a collection of canticles known as the Divine Comedy. Each canticle focus on one different aspect of the Christian views of afterlife. The Christian belief is that there are three different destinations, in which the soul could end up after passing from this time on earth. These destinations are known as Hell, Purgatory and Heaven, which explains Dante’s titles for his canticles; Inferno, Purgatorio and Paridiso. The souls who have committed mortal sins and have destroyed their relationship with God are put into Hell and those who have finished their penance or their souls are perfected are in Heaven or paradise.
Fear of the Lord is a gift of the Holy Spirit and fear of doing God’s will reveals an error in one’s conscience. When one is afraid he is lacking in faith because he is placing his trust in something other than God. The Catholic Encyclopedia defines fear: “Fear is an unsettlement of soul consequent upon the apprehension of some present or future danger.” Dante exhibits fear in the Inferno and Purgatorio because of this misplacement of trust due to an error in his conscience. In the Inferno, Dante is afraid to enter the gates of hell.
The title of this book is Dante’s Inferno and is written by Dante Alighieri. Dante’s Inferno was first published in 1317 and fits into the genre of an epic poem.

Beatrice sends Virgil to Dante’s aid in the dark woods, by telling him to utilize his “ornamented speech and whatever else is needed” to help Dante escape (Inferno, 2:67-68). Though a pagan, Virgil lived a virtuous life and is therefore able to guide Dante through Inferno and Purgatorio. Aside from being represented as a guide and teacher, Virgil is represented as the voice of reason in a world full of sin. Throughout the Inferno, Dante puts a distinctive emphasis on sinners who did not utilize their power to reason and thus Virgil’s wisdom stands contrary to all those sinners. Virgil’s presentation as voice of reason is often allegorical, meaning that he represents voice of reason in the form of an extended metaphor.
