Tbh I m not entirely sure I understood or connected with this at all, BUT I kind of wanted to read it to say I have read Dante Surely I m not alone on this So much for readingclassics and educating myself I just didn t like this at all The language reminded me too much of the latin translations I did in high school, except without the original present to make sense of the translation The writing was beautiful in the descriptions, but I had a really hard time grasping the plot or characters or anything really This should have had an introduction of some sort. This may just be the translator s fault, but this reads like a mediocre, pretentious novel whose author pressed the space key a few times too many. Unfortunately this is another editors mash up This is really aimed at people who have the desire like myself to own a complete set of little black classics, otherwise, avoid.

I d therefore willingly receive sure words that told what fortune now draws near to me Those arrows that we know will come fly slower.Not in those enigmatic words that once entrammelled pagan fools, like birds in lime, before the Lamb of God bore off their sin, but clear, precise and solemn in his speech, that father love now gave me his reply, enclosed, yet shown, in his own laughing light Contingency, whose sphere does not extend beyond the margins of your earthly things, is framed and painted in eternal sightThis much is willed, this much already sought And soon he ll see it through, who thinks it up, where all day long Christ s self is bought and sold Shrill cries of blame will chase the ones who lose they always do But vengeance, when it falls, will speak of that same Truth that deals it out You ll leave behind you all you hold most dear And this will be the grievous arrow barb that exile, first of all, will shoot your wayFor that ungrateful, crazy, vicious crew will turn as one against you Yet it s them whose brows before too long will blush with shame The light in which the treasure I found there was smiling still, first blazed in corruscations as will a ray of sun in golden mirrors,..For if at first your voice tastes odious, still it will offer, as digestion works, life giving nutriment to those who eatCanto XXIII Compare a bird, among her well loved boughs, has rested all night long while things lie hid, poised where her dear brood sleeps within their nest and then, to glimpse the looks she s longed to see, and find the food her fledglings feed upon these efforts weigh with her as pure delight before dawn comes she mounts an open sprig, and there, her heart ablaze, awaits the sun, eyes sharpening, fixed, till day is truly bornWhat richness, what abundance now well stored within such overflowing barns which were good husbandmen who sowed the seed below Here life is lived rejoicing in that hoard, gained ever weeping in the exile years of Babylon, when gold was put aside And here beneath the most exalted Son of God and Mary, in His victory, with all the new and all the ancient court, triumphs the one who holds such glory s keyCanto XXVII To Father and Son and the Holy Ghost, glory on high all Heaven here began, till I, at that sweet song, reeled drunkenly And what I saw, it seemed, was now the laughter of the universe So drunkenness, for me, came in through hearing and, no less, through sight The joy of that The happiness beyond all words A life of peace and love, entire and whole Riches all free of craving, troubleless And then I heard If I change colour now, don t be amazed at that For all of these, as I go on, you ll see change colour, tooWith that same colour that a cloud takes on, morning or evening, when it meets the sun, I saw, in every part, the heavens flushWhen Sun and Goat Horn touch as winter signs, the air in our terrestrial atmosphere floats down in falls of frozen vapour flakesThough art or nature, to possess our minds, may, in its paintings or in flesh itself, produce beguiling pastures for our eyes, these all would seem as nothing when compared with that divine delight which shone on me when I turned round to see her smiling lookCanto XXX Maybe, around six thousand miles away, the sixth hour, close to noon, flares out, while earth inclines its shadow cone to rest, near level At this same time, the mid point of the sky will start, so deep above us, to transform, and some stars lose their semblance in those depths Then brightest Aurora who serves the sun advances and, dawning, the skies, vista by vista, are closed till even the loveliest is goneSo now, it seemed, these flowers and flecks of light altered, to join and celebrate stillAnd I saw, now made known, both heavenly courts Splendour of God Through you I came to see triumph exalting in the realm of truth Grant me true strength to say what then I saw There is, above us there, a light that makes the All Creator in creation seen by those who only seeing Him have peace This light became a circle in its form, extending its circumference so far as might a belt too generous round the sun All that appears is made there by a ray reflected from the curve of that First Sphere which draws its life and movings from that light It is as though the incline of some hill were mirrored in a lake below, as if to view itself adorned in flower and richest greenCanto XXXIII Virgin and mother, daughter of your son, greater than all in honour and humility, you are the point that truth eternally is fixed upon And you have made the nature of the human being proud Its maker, then, did not disdain to make himself his making Love, in your womb, was fanned to fire again And here, in this eternal peace, the warmth of love has brought the Rose to germinate and bloom You are, for us, the noon time torch of love You are, among those mortals there below, the clearest fountain of their living hopes You are, in dignity and power, Our Lady All who, in wanting grace, do not seek help from you, might wish to soar yet lack the wings Nor in your kindness do you give your aid to those alone who ask, but often run, before they ask, to them in generous freedom In you is pity, in you compassion, in you all giving power All good in you is gathered up that creature form can bearYou raise yourself so far, O highest light, above our dying thoughts Now lend oncesome little part of what it seemed you were, and make my tongue sufficient in its powers that it may leave at least one telling spark of all your glory to a future race Returning somewhat to my memory, re echoing a little in my verse, your triumph over all will beknownRather, as sight in me, yet looking on, grew finer still, one single showing forth me, changing mutely laboured menear Within the being lucid, bright and deep of that high brilliance, there appeared to me three circling spheres, three coloured, one in span And one, it seemed, was mirrored by the next twin rainbows, arc to arc The third seemed fire, and breathed to first and second equally How short mere speaking falls, how faint against my own idea And this idea, compared to what I saw well, little hardly squares Eternal light, you sojourn in yourself alone Alone, you know yourself Known to yourself, you, knowing, love and smile on your own being An inter circulation, thus conceived, appears in you like mirrored brilliancy But when a while my eyes had looked this round, deep in itself, it seemed as painted now, in those same hues to show our human form At which, my sight was set entirely there But by now my desire and will were turned, like a balanced wheel rotated evenly, by the love that moves the sun and the other stars Read all my reviews on This Little
