Dante was an Italian poet and moral philosopher best known for the epic poem The Divine Comedy, which comprises sections representing the 3 tiers of the Christian afterlife: purgatory, heaven, and hell.
This poem, a great work of medieval literature and considered the greatest work of literature composed in Italian, is a philosophical Christian vision of mankind’s eternal fate. Dante is seen as the father of modern Italian, and his works have flourished since before his 1321 death.
Dante’s Divine Comedy has flourished for more than 650 years and has been considered a major work since Giovanni Boccaccio wrote a biography of Dante in 1373. By 1400, at least 12 commentaries had already been written on the poem’s meaning and significance.
