MERCURY

***

The Sun obscures it

Souls thought about Earthly fame

More than they should have

***

NOTE: The souls that appear to Dante on the planet Mercury accomplished great things, but they were overly concerned about lasting fame on Earth; therefore, they appear on a planet that is difficult to see because it is so close to the Sun.
