The Comedy of Dante Alighieri, the Florentine

Beginning with Dante's liberation from Hell, Pugatory relates his ascent, accompanied by Virgil, of the Mount of Purgatory-a mountain of nine levels. As he travels through the first seven levels, Dante observes the sinners who are waiting, and through these encounters he himself is transformed into a stronger and better man
