Description: The sections of Dante's The Divine Comedy, one of the world's greatest poems, correspond to Dante's vision of the three realms of the afterlife: hell, purgatory, and heaven. In the middle section, the Purgatorio, Dante climbs the Mount of Purgatory toward Paradise, guided by the poet Virgil, and inspired by his love for Beatrice.

From the Foreword by W.S. Merwin:

"In the years of my reading Dante, after the first overwhelming, reverberating spell of the Inferno, which I think never leaves one afterward, it was the Purgatorio that I had found myself returning to with a different, deepening attachment, until I reached a point when it was never far from me....

"Of the three sections of The Divine Comedy , only Purgatory happens on the earth, as our lives do, with our feet on the ground, crossing a beach, climbing a mountain. All three parts of the poem are images of our lives, but there is an intimacy peculiar to the Purgatorio. Here the times of day recur with all the sensations and associations that the hours bring with them, the hours of the world we are living in as we read the poem."
