Dante’s Divine Comedy – a “darkish” painting

Through me the way is to the city dolent;
Through me the way is to eternal dole;
Through me the way among the people lost.
Justice incited my sublime Creator;
Created me divine Omnipotence,
The highest Wisdom and the primal Love.
Before me there were no created things,
Only eterne, and I eternal last.
All hope abandon, ye who enter in!

  1. I’m amazed! What an original or, should I say, modern way of representing the Divine Comedy!
