d a de A P O ET HEL PS The

protagonist

Dante’s »DIVINE COMEDY« is Dante himself, a 35-year-old poet who deviated from the right path in life. On his way to the mountain of virtue, he wandered through a dark forest where wild animals threaten him. To his relief, he encounters the Roman poet VIRGIL . Dante is not confused by the fact that Virgil died more than 1,300 years ago, and it doesn’t bother him either that Virgil suggests taking a detour through hell. So, the two men head to the gates of hell that RODIN would use as inspiration for his sculpture some centuries later.
