‘Abandon all hope, you who enter here…’
When Dante finds himself lost in a dark and menacing wood, the ghost of Virgil offers to lead him to safety. It is a path that will take him though the kingdom of Satan, through the nine circles of hell and the gruesome sufferings of the damned.
Inferno has fascinated generations of readers - inspiring films, operas, comics, video games and works from writers such as Balzac, Pound, and most recently Dan Brown. Written while Dante was in exile and under the threat of being burned at the stake, this dramatic vision of Hell still has the power to shock.
