@Download Kindle ì Inferno Ë Guided By The Poet Virgil, Dante Plunges To The Very Depths Of Hell And Embarks On His Arduous Journey Towards God Together They Descend Through The Twenty Four Circles Of The Underworld And Encounter The Tormented Souls Of The Damned From Heretics And Pagans To Gluttons, Criminals And Seducers Who Tell Of Their Sad Fates And Predict Events Still To Come In Dante S Life In This First Part Of His Divine Comedy, Dante Fused Satire And Humour With Intellect And Soaring Passion To Create An Immortal Christian Allegory Of Mankind S Search For Self Knowledge And Spiritual Enlightenment This review and other non spoilery reviews can be found The Book PrescriptionBut the stars that marked our starting fall away We must go deeper into greater pain, for it is not permitted that we stayBasically this book is about Dante s journey in hell, so it must be one hell of a book, right I am not actually the biggest fan of modern poetry I have tried books as The princess saves herself in this one and Milk and simply did not like them because they felt like a Facebook or a Tumblr postthan a book Just put some words in certain topics in a column and that s it I may have gone to the other extremity when I read a book written in 1300 And I was not disappointed Dante is known as one of history s greatest authors and you can see that in the writing style I will take this opportunity to thanks the genius being who is the translator To be able to capture the essence, the rhyme and the messages in another language while maintaining the originality is no easy task And he outdid himself in this one This is not a typical book, I mean there is no character development and plot twists because this is freaking hell People are tortured here and not supposed to develop Lol A point that Dante clearly emphasized is that the punishment is equal to the sin For example In the third circle, the gluttonous wallow in a vile, putrid slush produced by a ceaseless, foul, icy rain a great storm of putrefaction as punishment for subjecting their reason to a voracious appetite But one thing I am not sure about is how the author was censorious enough to pass judgement on many important figures He decided that some people as Saladin and Prophet Mohamet were in hell and he even decided what circles to put them in A slightly offending thing because it was clearly biased Summary A not so typical journey and a not so typical book If you re looking to read a slightly heavy book that affected literature according to my friend who studies Eng lit then this is what you are looking for. I just want to start off by saying that Through me you enter into the City of Woes would make an EXCELLENT tramp stamp Jump on it Being that I am an atheist living in the Bible Belt, I was certain that reading this would lead to some sort of goodreads tirade, which can at times feel about as good as vomiting up a sour stomach oryou knowdoing other stuff like shit that ladies don t do However, I was from the outset hypnotized by Dante s tr s Baudelaire esque grotesque imagery and overall style For such a holy shitfuck, he had quite the murky mind He was dreaming up torture scenarios that wouldn t even BEGIN to be trumped until Gilles de Rais and Vlad Tepes came around, like, a century later And don t be surprised if he zaps you with the occasional rotting pustule or maggot infested knife wound These aren t literal examples, but they illustrate just how THE OPPOSITE OF FLOWERY some of his language is So I went into reading this with a huge wall up I know, I know, a terrible way to read , but then I realized that I wasn t JUST going to be proselytized toI was going to be threatened with nasty, rotting, coldsore herpee mange pits all over my body that George W Bush and Paris Hilton are going to take turns pouring their boiling hot diarrhea snot into Dante, you sick bastard AWESOME So onward I galloped, discerning through all the filthy language that A I am, in fact, going to hell.B They will have trouble determining the circle I will end up in because I could be placed in EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM save maybe, like, one or two I stopped counting after awhile.C The Dalai Lama, too, is going to hell In fact, the higher ups are apparently so sadistic, they sent people to hell who had lived morally just lives but were BORN BEFORE THE COMING OF CHRIST He ll punish you for not worshiping Him before you even know who He is If there was ever a better use for WTF , I don t know what it is That s like your mom smacking you in the mouth for getting pregnant while you re still a virgin, or like wanting to ban a book that you haven t even seen in real life yet That means that every intelligent being for the first few BILLIONS OF YEARS is in hell RIGHT NOW ALL OF EM Every evolutionary step forward up to the first Homosapien Christian is a batch of poor bastards that has been ferried across the River Styx HARSH I mean seriouslyeven Moses and Noah were in hell until Jesus came through with the VIP passes Apparently, the wholly omniscient creator forgot to put them on the guest list Ain t that some shit One specific gripe about the storyI m not digging this whole emasculated devil thing I mean, wallowing in your own filth freezing your ass off with bitch tears in your eyes at all times This is the malevolent force that the Christians live in constant fear of, seriously It s a non stop temptation to be like HIM Come on, everybody knows the devil is confusingly sexy and he likes to smoke fancy cigars and drink brandy and wear fine suits and tell hilarious jokes How else is he supposed to charm us away from the true path Keep up, Dantesheesh Forgive me, father, for I have sinned THE END Oh, and if you hated this review, I have a back up review

Commedia 1 The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri Volume 1 Inferno, Dante AlighieriThe Divine Comedy is a long narrative poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c 1308 and completed in 1320, a year before his death, in 1321 It is widely considered the preeminent work in Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature The poem s imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world view as it had developed in the Western Church, by the 14th century It helped establish the Tuscan language, in which it is written, as the standardized Italian language It is divided into three parts Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso 1968 1335 1393 14 Dante s Inferno the first book I was assigned to read in my high school World Literature class Back then I couldn t get over how much the emotion of fear set the tone as I read each page I recently revisited this classic Rather than aconventional review after all, there really is nothing I can add as a way of critical commentary as a tribute to the great poet, I would like to share the below microfiction I wrote a number of years ago JOYRIDE One balmy July evening at a seaside amusement park, Hector and his date strolled past the merry go round, toddlers swings and tooting fire engine out to thehair raising rides At the very end of the pier, beyond the Wild Mouse and giant Ferris wheel, there was a new roller coaster that looked pretty frightening Not only did the tracks have steep climbs and amazing plunges but there was an opening in the boardwalk where the roller coaster took its passengers under the pier Look, Hector said, pointing to the hole in the boardwalk, I ve never seen a roller coaster whose tracks go beneath the surface Oh his date squealed, eager for as much of a thrill as the amusements had to offer, that must really be scary Let s go They took their place in line behind the last thrill seeker and watched as the roller coaster ascended, hurled down and sped around hairpin turns, finally climbing the highest hump of track and descending to where the track ran beneath the pier Hector looked over at the spot in the boardwalk from which the train would eventually reemerge He waited and waited This was taking muchtime than he though.Hector s girlfriend squeezed his hand Wow I bet they re really getting spooked down there Hector heard shrieks coming from some place underneath their feet shrieks not of delight or pleasure but shrieks to make your blood run cold Oh, I can t wait his date said, tugging at his shirtsleeve.Hector crouched down to hear the shrieks and howlsclearly Waves of heat rising from the spaces between the wooden boards of the boardwalk burned his face After several uneasy moments he stood back up and watched as the roller coaster finally rolled through the cavernous opening in the boardwalk and stopped near the line.All of the passengers faces were ashen and a middle aged woman in the front seat was weeping on her husband s shoulder This must really be something, Hector s date said.One terrified passenger unbuckled herself and climbed out She walked past, eyes downcast, and Hector could both see and smell her hair was singed.And if this wasn t enough, the cheerless bearded man running the ride collected everyone s tickets and pronounced lots would be drawn to determine who would have to ride in the first car Hector s date called out that if nobody else wanted, she would gladly volunteer for the front seat.When the old man nodded, she pulled Hector by the hand to the front of the roller coaster and strapped him in next to her Hector noticed for the first time the name of this ride spelled out in red iridescent letters over their heads was DANTE S INFERNO Hector slunk down in his seat next to his girlfriend, who was now giggling and playfully poking him in the ribs As the roller coaster began moving, Hector tried to console himself with the grim fact that everyone on the preceding ride did at least come back alive.
