The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri

       iOS iPhone

Dante Alighieri (May/June c.1265 – September 14, 1321), commonly known as Dante, was an Italian poet of the Middle Ages. In Italy he is known as "the Supreme Poet" (il Sommo Poeta) or just il Poeta.

The Divine Comedy (Italian: La Divina Commedia), written between 1308 and Alighieri's death in 1321, is widely considered the central poem of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the Christian afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church. It helped establish the Tuscan dialect in which it is written as the Italian standard. It is divided into three parts, the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.
