    The Inferno is a work full of imagery that describes the horrors of hell through the words of the author. What does Dante gain by going through Hell? What does Dante gain by all of this by taking himself through such an experience? I believe there are three elements of life that Dante realizes through his time in Inferno. Throughout the book I feel the three elements Dante learns of are confidence‚ clarification of his faith‚ and a release from his own personal hell of isolation. In the beginning

    Gustave Doré is a prime example of the type of images Dante tried to depict while writing “Dante’s inferno.” Dante wanted the emotion of the story to be dark and not at all bright or cheerful. When I view William Blake’s drawings I don’t feel frightened‚ petrified or even scared. He constructed his pictures in a bright cheerful and that takes away the feeling that Dante tried to create. I feel if William Blake didn’t fill his pictures with color and darkened up his sky‚ the pictures would have the

    Dante’s use of allegory in the Inferno greatly varies from Plato’s "Allegory of the Cave" in purpose‚ symbolism‚ characters and mentors‚ and in attitude toward the world. An analysis of each of these elements in both allegories will provide an interesting comparison. Dante uses allegory to relate the sinner’s punishment to his sin‚ while Plato uses allegory to discuss ignorance and knowledge. Dante’s Inferno describes the descent through Hell from the upper level of the opportunists to the most evil
