La Commedia 5. The Cowards and the Doomed Souls

from Inferno, Canto III

Woodcut-La Commedia 5. The Cowards and the Doomed Souls

At the entrance of Hell the boatman Charon herds the damned souls to board his boat to cross the River Acheron. Meanwhile countless souls of the Cowards, who didn’t respond to the important calls in life and never truly lived, aimlessly chase a banner: “so many that I wondered how death could have undone so great a number” (trans: Mark Musa). They are repeatedly stung by the wasps and hornets, which circle them.


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