La Commedia 21. Ulysees in the Flame

from Inferno, Canto XXVI

Woodcut-la Commedia 21. Ulysees in the Flame

The Athenian warriors Ulysees (Odysseus) and Diomed burn together in the flame amongst the Deceivers. Dante grieves over the vast misuse of human talent. In Dante’s version, after Troy, Ulysees and his men managed to sail past the Pillars of Hercules to the Atlantic and almost reached the island of Mount Purgatory. However, they all perished in a shipwreck because of their lack of faith in God.

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