BURDEN OF PRIDE

***

The burden of pride

Has been purged on the mountain

Dante feels lighter

***

NOTE: An angel removes one of the P’s (P = Latin peccatum = sin) from Dante’s forehead. Because the burden of pride has been removed from Dante, he feels lighter as he climbs to the second story of the seven-story mountain.
