INEFFABILITY

***

Poem has mighty theme

I am mortal: I stagger

when I lift this theme

***

NOTE: Dante is aware that he has seen many things in Paradise that he cannot describe in words. Such things as Beatrice’s smile he has to skip in writing the Paradise because he cannot adequately describe them. This will continue to be a theme in the Paradise.
