Dante’s Inferno, Canto 13: violent profligates

***

Many profligates

Violently waste their wealth

Then seek a quick death

***

NOTE: Many wealthy people violently waste their wealth, and then, rather than live in poverty, they seek a quick death. After violently wasting his wealth, Lano of Siena deliberately sought death in a 1287 battle; he could have escaped by retreating, but he stayed to fight so that he would die. Because his wasting of wealth was violent and because his death was a kind of suicide, he is punished among the suicides in Circle 7, which punishes the violent. He keeps his human form, but dogs chase and attack and tear him to pieces.

IF The Militant Negro™ Reblogs Your Post…..

Good post.

The Militant Negro™

I thought the time is right to inform those bloggers NOT familiar with my blogs mission statement, to issues one. Seems to be some confusion as to why I reblog other bloggers content. So I’ll be brief and then go into much detail.

Me being brief……… Because I want to reblog other bloggers content. And WORSTPRESS agrees with me, it’s a right of other WORSTPRESS clients to reblog.

Me going into detail……… I have learned over the years that The Arts may well be the only thing that keeps humanity from becoming extinct. Our current world leaders are all insane, every last one of them. Planning nuclear annihilation, allowing mass murder by well armed insane civilians, and just being greedy dickheads.

My way to help society and humanity survive the likes of Dumbass Trump and his buddies on Capital Hill, is to support and market all…

Dante’s Inferno, Canto 13: Pier delle Vigne

***

PIER DELLE VIGNE (PETER OF THE VINES)

***
Loyal to this man:

Holy Roman Emperor;

Disloyal to God

***

NOTE: Pier delle Vigne blames Envy for his committing suicide. Envious people spread false rumors about him, which his employer, Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, believed, although Pier was loyal to him. Pier was put in prison, where he committed suicide. By committing suicide, Pier was disloyal to his God.

Dante’s Inferno, Canto 13: EXILE

***
Failure, loss, exile

Time to commit suicide?

Dante must say no

***

NOTE: After his political party loses power, Dante will go into exile and he will be tempted to commit suicide, like Pier delle Vigne did. Dante must say no to suicide or he will end up in the Inferno like Pier delle Vigne did. Dante is traveling through the Inferno and is talking to damned souls in order to learn how to save his soul. This is one of the lessons he must learn.

Dante’s Inferno, Canto 13: grubby shrubs

Engraver: Auguste Doré

***

Wood of grubby shrubs

Each contains a suicide

Break a branch, blood flows

***

NOTE: The shrubs found here contain the souls of the suicides. Harpies — half-woman, half-bird monsters — break the shrubs’ branches, and blood flows. The suicides rejected autonomy — freedom and independence to respond to the bad things in life and either endure them or make improvements — in life, and they have no autonomy in the Inferno.

Dante’s Inferno, Canto 13: NO

Inferno_Canto_13_verse_11

Engraver: Auguste Doré

***

No path and no fruit

No smooth branches, no green leaves

No sun and no life

***

NOTE: The suicides said NO to life. By committing suicide, they committed violence against themselves.
