La Commedia 6. The Great Poets in Limbo

from Inferno, Canto IV

Woodcut-La Commedia 6. The Great Poets in Limbo

In the darkness of Hell only Limbo is lit up by the greatness of men including Virgil, who are here permanently simply because they were born before Christ and did not come in contact of his teaching. Dante meets some of his mentors: Homer, Horace, Ovid and Lucan. Though delighted in meeting the great pagan poets, Dante is distressed by their undeserved fate.
