La Commedia 9. Crossing the Styx

from Inferno. Canto VIII

Woodcut-La Commedia 9. Crossing the Styx

The wrathful tear each other violently in the swamps of the Styx while Dante and Virgil get across the river aboard a boat steered by Phlegyas. The infernal city of Dis with a lighthouse, perhaps based on the one in Alexandria, in the distance is their destination. This is in the area of Lower Hell as opposed to Upper Hell, which the poets have been through.

 

Printed on hand made Japanese paper in the edition of 30.
