not only a good read and great way dor him to get at his enemies but I think its potential visual "falir" would make it an awesome movie!

I have always thought so too, although I believe the title of the book is the Divine Comedy.

Inferno is just the first book.

Or haven't you read Purgatorio and Paradiso?

Hahaha, what a coincidence that the other thread of yours I just read I thought was about the Inferno!

So you missed the true spirit of the book about Dante's inner conflicts for the cheap eye candy? Right?

EDIT: I'm just teasing.

i read the translation, and it was boring so i got a book with english on the left and italian on the right so i could see his structure and rhyming pattern. (i forgot the name of the rhyming pattern)

I guess to be able to do it you have to be born with it, it ain't somethign that can be learnt.

Anyway, in Paradiso, we see why he wrote the book. A tribute to his lover long gone from this world.

That wasn't cheap, it was very expensive eye candy.

I once started reading La Divina Comoedia but got stuck somewhere in Hell  I still have a re-reading planned, though!
