The Divine Comedy
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Feb 2, 2017 - 408 pages
The Divine Comedy is composed of 14,233 lines that are divided into three canticas (Italian plural cantiche) - Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory), and Paradiso (Paradise) - each consisting of 33 cantos (Italian plural canti). An initial canto, serving as an introduction to the poem and generally considered to be part of the first cantica, brings the total number of cantos to 100. It is generally accepted, however, that the first two cantos serve as a unitary prologue to the entire epic, and that the opening two cantos of each cantica serve as prologues to each of the three canticas
