Dante’s Inferno Canto I Modern Language Version. Written by Jim Belton and Illustrated by Victoria Olson

Canto I (49-50)

Canto I (49-50)

“and I lost hope of reaching the hilltop. I was like a man who takes his gains willingly, but when the time comes to lose, weeps and is full of sadness. The beasts came at me and little by little pushed me back down the slope toward the dark wood, where the sun did not shine.” 

 

I found Jim Belton’s  modern language version on word press; he’s been re-writing The Divine Comedy – by Dante Alighieri.  Click here to read Canto I.
