Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 34: STARS


Engraver: Auguste Doré




Climb ever upward

Dante looked and saw the stars

Reached Purgatory


NOTE: Virgil and Dante climb down Lucifer’s body, holding onto his body hair. At the center of the Earth — Lucifer’s crotch — they turn and start climbing up a path in the Earth that leads to the Mountain of Purgatory. Once there, Dante looks up and sees the stars.
