I don't want to sound like a pleb but this was really a pain in the ass to get through. Dante's character is one of the most unsympathetic I've ever had to follow. Couldn't relate with him at all.
I would probably had to read it through again to really appreciate the vision of the Hell that Dante presented but after first reading it didn't leave any marks on me at all.

Also I think that it aged horribly due to altered conception of Christianity. I don't know...I was pretty hyped for it though.

I'm talking just about the Inferno, how are the other two standing?

I'm OP, this is the old thread >>7641174

First of noone really answered the last question and second, I kinda want to still have a discussion about this book.

On Dante's unsympathy, the point is made I think early to mid-way through that to sympathize with people in hell is to question God placing them in there. It's a form of hubris that Dante corrects within himself. People in hell are exactly where they belong. It is the will of God. Dante's being a good Christian.

too late.

this is what I read it as, the further down the levels he goes the less his human morals affect him and he begins to understand the divine morality. He was also very high on himself and salty for being exiled. Still amazing book if you think about it. It is pretty much a mash up of christain hell, greek mythology, and Florence politics all with great imagery.

Why do you expect to relate to a character that goes to hell in a book written over a thousand years ago?

Of course being the fedora-tier american millennial that you are, you would have trouble relating to a fucking italian poet.
I swear 'the character was unsympathetic' is shorthand for 'wasn't exactly like me'.
It's easiest 'criticism' one can make. Just like blindly saying 'the pacing was bad'.

>not relating to main character is a flaw
So it's true. This board really was taken over by tourists.
