POLITICS

Theme of Politics

Very important in the

Divine Comedy

***

NOTE: Obviously, Canto 6 in the Inferno, Canto 6 in the Paradise, and Canto 6 in the Paradisehave the topic of politics in common. In the Inferno, we get the small picture: We learn about the politics of one city only: Florence. In Purgatory, we get the middle picture: We learn about politics in Italy. In Paradise, we get the big picture: We learn about the politics of the empire as a whole. That Dante writes about politics in Canto 6 of each part of his Divine Comedyshows how carefully organized this poem is.
