The Inferno - Dante Alighieri

“Thence we came forth to rebehold the stars.” Thus begins Dante Alighieri's epic journey in Inferno, the first part of the Divine Comedy. In the year 1300, on the night before Good Friday, Dante finds himself lost in a dark wood, facing a mountain and surrounded by three fearsome beasts—a lion, a leopard, and a she-wolf. Unable to escape, he returns to the woods and encounters the ghost of the great Roman poet Virgil.
