La Commedia 42. Reaching the Earthly Paradise

from Purgatorio, Canto XXVII

Woodcut-La Commedia 42. Reaching the Earthly Paradise

Virgil says to Dante as he wakes up to the final ascent to the Earthly Paradise: “That precious fruit which all men eagerly go searching for on many different boughs will give, today, peace to your hungry soul!” (trans: Mark Musa) As they leave the steep and arduous climb behind, Virgil makes his final speech: "From here on let your pleasure be your guide. --- I crown and mitre you lord of yourself.” (trans: as above) To this artist, this is one of the most beautiful and moving moments in La Commedia.


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