Yet, despite Virgil’s association with enlightened and elevated ... ... middle of paper ... ... His relationship to Virgil is enriched by their similar relationship to language as poets, and by the challenge of creating a poetic legacy on earth that counters the legacy of the tower of Babel in hell. Ultimately, the pilgrim’s desire reflects the reality of Dante’s own legacy, one that is immeasurably influential. Works Cited Alighieri, Dante. The Inferno. Vol 1.

Dante, however, was not a commoner. In fact, Dante's party, who were called the Guelfs, took control of Florence during Dante's time in 1266 (Fergusson, Francis, 26). Sadly, however, Dante was banished from Italy at the turn of the century, which was around the time of the writing of La Comedia, which included three books: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. When Dante died, however, he was very highly praised for his cantos and their "beautiful, polished, and ornate style. "(Boccaccio, Giovanni and Lionardo Broni Arentino, 4).
This status is not random, but generated by the fact that this paper is a moral autobiography, a drama of the age, a work of synthesis in politics, an epic and, of course, an allegorical poem. Even from the start there should be mentioned the existence of three distinct layers, merged by Dante in the building of his fictional universe. Usually when we talk about Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise, we know that they are imaginary spaces, detached from faith. Religion is one that states the existence of these areas after death, where souls will go. It's where we are rewarded or punished for the way in which we lived our life.
Dante and Beatrice have only met twice, but Dante was so touched by both meetings he shares his love for Beatrice with the reader. The second encounter occurred when they passed each other on the streets of Florence. She turned and greeted him; this filled him with such joy that he ran to his room and started to dream about her. Beatrice died at the age of twenty-four. This meeting has sparked the first sonnet in La Vita Nouva, which he wrote in 1293 (Rosetti).
