Dante's Inferno is the first part of the book The Divine Comedy written by Dante Alighieri. The book tells us about Dante's vision of the damned souls in hell, their punishments and how this place is structured

In Dante's Inferno everything refers to the number three: the book is divided into three Cantos. In turn, each Canto is divided into triplets and the condemned are divided into three categories in different sections of the underground cavity.

The order of the sentence of each convict depends on Aristotle's Ethics and establishes different categories of evil in the use of reason. The damned are punished through the opposite of their sins or through an analogy of them.

On the first level are the sinners closest to God: gluttons, lustful, greedy and ungodly. On a second level would be the violent, with a greater use of reason than the first but blinded by passion, and on the third and final level are the traitors and fraudsters who knowingly committed evil.

All the sinners in Hell share the feeling of God as the greatest punishment. The greater the sin, the smaller the physical space in which the souls inhabit.

For this digital edition of the book Dante's Inferno we have used the translation of Cary, Henry Francis, (1772-1844).
