The Inferno

I’ve had it on my shelf for years, I finally read The Inferno by Dante Alighieri. After reading Passage and disliking it, I needed to read some higher quality literature on the theme of death and the afterlife. Surprisingly approachable for a 700-year old text, I assume that is in part due to the translation. Very interesting to understand the hierarchy of sins in the mind of someone living in 1300 AD — I don’t think most people would have the same levels of classification today.
