Dante’s PURGATORY, Canto 8: Corrado Malaspina






Comes from family

Known for hospitality —

Dante will be their guest


NOTE: Throughout THE DIVINE COMEDY, Dante receives hints of his upcoming exile. Here he tells Corrado Malaspina that he is aware of the Malaspina family’s reputation for hospitality. Corrado tells him that within seven years he will know much better that hospitality.
