The maiden Matelda leads Dante into the water of Lethe to be closer to Beatrice. Coaxed by the dancing maidens, Beatrice unveils for Dante at last in a splendour more akin to a pagan goddess: “ Turn, Beatrice, turn your sacred eyes,” they sang, “and look upon your faithful one who came so very far to look at you!” (trans: Mark Musa)
