Dante’s Inferno offers a great amount of lessons that are considered to be moral and necessary. Born in Florence to a noble family, and ended up spending almost half of his life in exile Dante presents The Divine Comedy which is believed an epic, with various moral lessons and taking a reader’s conscience in to his grateful imagination that is altogether a different world from what we are living and it’s basis are the same moral values we believe in. In the review, I talked about how iconic it is that a piece of literature like Dante’s can survive almost 700 years and reaching a state of being well-known. That’s the beauty of his work.
“How hard it is to tell what it was like,
this wood of wilderness, savage and stubborn
(the thought of it brings back all my old fears),
a bitter place! Death could scarce be bitterer.
But if I would show the good that came of it
I must talk about things other than the good.”
Accept the consequences of your actions which can be morally performed. There will always be a dilemma for an individual must call it a dilemma even when knowing the consequences of one’s own actions, one has to conduct his actions and stick to them for they resemble a right passage through time and space. Right and wrong are not some arbitrary reflections of one’s thoughts, they are basis of one’s conscience that lead up to the consequences one is often surrounded. They are basic of structure of every action intends to perform.
Though out the 34 canto’s Dante enlightens on few other ethics of humanity that are essential in the formation and are bittersweet.
