Inferno, Canto 2

Some basic ideas

slide2

This Canto could be called “Dante Doubts”.

  • At the end of Canto 1, Dante agrees to follow Virgil through the other world.
  • At the beginning of Canto 2, it is getting darker. It is the afternoon of Good Friday, Easter weekend.
  • Dante expresses his doubts telling Virgil that compared to Aeneas and St. Paul (the Chosen Vessel), he is a nobody and does not deserve to go into the land of the dead.
slide3

Virgil gets upset with him and announces that he will tell him a story that should make Dante’s fears go away.

  • Virgil narrates how Beatrice came from Heaven to Limbo (a part of Hell) to ask him to help Dante, who is in the world of the living, on the surface of the Earth, where the dark forest is. (This is the first story within a story).
slide4

When telling Dante this story, Virgil tells him that he, Virgil, asked Beatrice, how she descended from Heaven to Hell, if this was forbidden.

  • Beatrice then tells Virgil (this is the second story within a story) what happened in Heaven that made her come down to Limbo, where Virgil was.
slide5

After hearing about the holy women in Heaven who are concerned about him, Dante is filled with courage again.

  • He once again resolves to follow Virgil on the journey.
slide6
Tips
  • As you can see, this Canto is structured with three stories, one within the other.
  • 1. The story that Dante is telling us.
  • 2. The story that Virgil tells Dante.
  • 3. The story that Beatrice tells Virgil.
do not get confused
Do not get confused:
  • Look carefully at the quotation marks, when they open and when they close.
  • As yourself “who is saying this to whom?”
  • Use the document with links for the Divine Comedy in ENLACES.
  • Create and trade tests with a friend. For example, you can get a summary from internet, divide it in sentences, jumble the sentences and make your friend sequence them correctly.

If you read an online summary, make sure you read another one. Sometimes the “experts” are in a hurry and misread or skip an element.

  • Good luck!!
  • Enjoy the musicality of the poetry in Italian:
