Purgatorio 8 is the last canto of ante-purgatory, the last full canto devoted to this elegiac, nostalgic waiting place. In order to say that it is dusk the poet says that it is that time of day that makes travelers think of home, and that makes them turn their thoughts back to the day when they bid farewell to their sweet friends. The melancholy sweetness, the sweet melancholia, of these verses is palpable:. There is, however, a radically different outcome to this ritual from that which originally occurred in the Garden of Eden: angels appear with swords and drive away the snake. I call this performance a ritual event because it occurs, as far as we can tell, every evening, affording these souls an opportunity to meditate continuously on the temptation that they were able to defeat.
Petrarca I wish I could remember that first day, First hour, first moment of your meeting me, If bright or dim the season, it might be Summer or Winter for aught I can say; So unrecorded did it slip away, So blind was I to see and to foresee, So dull to mark the budding of my tree That would not blossom yet for many a May. If only I could recollect it, such A day of days! A TRIAD Three sang of love together: one with lips Crimson, with cheeks and bosom in a glow, Flushed to the yellow hair and finger-tips; And one there sang who soft and smooth as snow Bloomed like a tinted hyacinth at a show; And one was blue with famine after love, Who like a harpstring snapped rang harsh and low The burden of what those were singing of. One shamed herself in love; one temperately Grew gross in soulless love, a sluggish wife; One famished died for love. Thus two of three Took death for love and won him after strife; One droned in sweetness like a fattened bee: All on the threshold, yet all short of life. No indeed, not I: Perhaps some day, who knows? You want to hear it?

The Divine Comedy c. It is widely considered to be the preeminent work in Italian literature and one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church by the 14th century. It helped establish the Tuscan language , in which it is written also in most present-day Italian-market editions , as the standardized Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Inferno , Purgatorio , and Paradiso. The narrative describes Dante's travels through Hell , Purgatory , and Paradise or Heaven , while allegorically the poem represents the soul's journey towards God.
