Inferno I.1-9 (engraving by Gustave Doré)

In the middle of the journey of our life
I found myself again in a dark forest,
for I had lost the pathway straight and right.

Ah how hard it is to describe, this forest
savage and rough and overwhelming, for
to think of it renews my fear before it!

It is so bitter, death is little more;
but to discuss the good I found, I’ll say
the other things I witnessed there before.
