Divine Comedy

Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

The Divine Comedy is an epic poem about the journey of Florentine poet Dante into Hell and beyond to the kingdoms of Heaven. The poem is a political satire of religious and political structures in the Middle Ages in Italy and was revolutionary in featuring living figures of the period as damned souls condemned to Hell. Dante's journey is aided by the spirit of Roman poet Virgil and by the theological spirit Beatrice.
