Dante Alighieri's masterpiece "The Divine Comedy" is a famous Medieval Italian epic poem depicting the realms of the afterlife. Dante (who was born in 1265) wrote The Divine Comedy somewhere between 1308 and his death in 1321, while he was in exile from his hometown of Florence, Italy, which had been enduring civil war.


The Divine Comedy is divided into three separate volumes, each containing 33 cantos (or chapters). These volumes are Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.


Dante is both the author and the central character of this trilogy. He travels through all of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven to make his way back to God, meeting several characters from history and literature on his way.

Dante Alighieri

Dante Alighieri was born in Florence Italy in 1265. In 1301, a political dispute lead to his exile from Florence.

Over the next few years he made his home in Verona, Lucca and other cities. By 1310 he had written Inferno and Purgatorio, the first two books of his Divine Comedy.

He wrote the third and concluding book, Paradiso, in the years after he found sanctuary in Ravenna in 1318.

An allegorical account of his wanderings in a spiritual wilderness and eventual salvation under the guidance of his beloved Beatrice, The Divine Comedy is recognised as Dante's masterwork and a landmark of world literature. He died in exile in 1321 and was buried in Ravenna.
