Dante’s Dilema

Posted on September 21, 2014

Dante’s Divine Comedy – “Help him Virgil, so that he may come to me, I am Beatrice and when I am finally before my Lord, I will praise you to him.”
Beatrice Portinari was Dante’s fiance and true love who was killed by a prisoner in Acre, who killed her out of revenge because Dante had sex with the avenger’s wife, while she waited for Dante’s return home from The Crusades.
