Abstract:

In The Inferno Dante journeyed to the depths of evil and the true nature of sin. In The Purgatorio he explored the renunciation of sin. Now, in The Paradiso, the final canticle in The Divine Comedy, Dante shares the ultimate goal of human striving -the merging of individual destiny with universal order. One of the towering creations of world literature, this epic discovery of sublime truth is a work of almost mystical intensity -an immortal hymn to God, Nature, Eternity, and, above all, "the Love that moves the Sun and other stars."
