Overview
Excerpt from The Divine Comedy, Vol. 1

Ah Had I words to tell, if any could, The fierce harsh aspect-that wild forest wore, If I but think thereon my fear's renewed

So bitter is it, Death is hardly more; But to make plain the good I found, -'twere well To say what other fate I met before.

How I came there, in truth I cannot tell; Sleep lay so heavy on me in that hour, That, dreaming, out of my true path I fell; But when above I saw the mountain tower, There where the valley ended whence had flowed The fear, which on my heart had set its power, I looked on high, and 10 Its shoulder glowed Already in the rays of that fair sun That guides men right, wherever lies their road.

Then was the fear a little past and done, Which deep within my heart-springs had endured, That night, through which in sorrow I had won; And like a man, by chance from death secured, Who, panting, struggles from the sea to land, Then turns to view his peril, ill assured.
