Anybody here read this?  I love this book,  very poetic and mystic.  Indeed a masterpiece in literature.

Loved it. Very dark.
The last level was kinda rushed, they get there, describe what's going on, and leave. I don't know, I guess I was expecting a little more.

Wow Lion, Great Topic.
"L'Inferno di Dante" is the First of Three Books:
INFERNO-HELL, PURGATORIO-PURGATORY and PARADISO-PARADISE, all these Three Books Compose "LA DIVINA COMMEDIA" di DANTE
I studied it during High School, same for Purgatory and Paradise. But, IMO, Inferno is just The Most Intense!!!
All The Three Poems, all The (Whole) Book is widely considered The Central Epic Poem of Italian Literature, and is seen as one of the Greatest Works of World Literature. A Great Masterpiece, a Milestone.
Guys, as Lion Knows, it's not boring or a "Brick" (if you know what I mean)...
... it's very "Engaging"!!!
From Inferno, Lines like: "Midway in the Journey of Our Life"-"Nel Mezzo del Cammin di Nostra Vita"... or "Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here"-"Lasciate Ogni Speranza, (o) Voi che Entrate"... or from Inferno/Ulysses' Last Voyage (The Best Poetry and One of the "Highlights" of the Entire Inferno), ie "Fatti non foste per Viver come Bruti, ma per Seguir Virtute e Canoscenza"... something like "You weren't born to be brute, but to Follow Goodness and Knowledge" (BTW Lion, could you give me the exact English for this Line?), ARE JUST AWESOME!!! Plus, all INFERNO is... I'd say TOO COOL!!!

Cowboy Is Cool, Great LInk... it can really help who wants to read Dante's Inferno, and once again, Lion my friend, I've to say that to talk about Dante in The Warriors Turf is Great!!! What about luther's Circle?
Great Shot man!!! 8)
Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
