Dante’s Inferno, Canto 8: Filippo Argenti




For this angry man

Dante is without pity

Wants him punished more


NOTE: Dante is learning as he travels deeper into the Inferno. Previously, he pitied Francesca da Rimini and Ciacco, but he has no pity for Filippo Argenti. Virgil approves of Dante’s righteous anger.
