La Commedia 15. Capaneus Defiant

from Inferno, Canto XIV

Woodcut-La Commedia 15. Capaneus Defiant

It is curious to see Capaneus a pagan, who blasphemed against Jupiter and was struck by the thunderbolt as the sole representative of the Blasphemers. Lying in the bed of burning sand, he is constantly hit by thunderbolts in the shower of fire. William Blake had much sympathy for Capaneous, whose defiance appealed to him.


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