canto 1 purgatorio commento

[28] At the same time that Dante makes this strong connection through the repetition of “l’altro polo”, present only in these two canti, he also inserts an interesting disjunction, engineered by his syntax. 92 come tu di’ , non c’è mestier lusinghe: 105 però ch’a le percosse non seconda.

Purgatorio 6 is the canto of Italy, as Inferno 6 is the canto of Florence and Paradiso 6 is the canto of Empire.But this symmetry should not delude us: the concept of “Italy” is much murkier to Dante and his contemporaries—and much further from the modern concept—than that of … Letteratura italiana - Dante Alighieri — Parafrasi molto precisa del Canto 6 del Purgatorio della Divina commedia di Dante Alighieri . 58 Questi non vide mai l’ultima sera; In this way Dante brings about our first introduction to a scandalous fact, one which upsets all that we thought we knew about Virgilio and his fellow virtuous pagans. 37 Li raggi de le quattro luci sante 89 più muover non mi può, per quella legge outspread—upon the grass; therefore, aware let us go back; this is the point at which Arthur Goldhammer for U. of Chicago Press, 1984), Purgatory as a concept was, in Dante’s time, of much more recent vintage than Hell or Paradise, both of which have ancient origins. But all the souls in Antepurgatory, without exception, will eventually pass this way, so that what we have is another instance of Dante’s art of gradation: to create his newest new beginning, his newest “dritto inizio,” the poet must institute difference, must draw a line between what was and what is to come — the new.

He exploits this freedom to the hilt in the creation of Antepurgatory: as an authorially invented space for which there is absolutely no constraining theological precedent, Dante’s Antepurgatory has generated sustained critical bewilderment, with regard, for instance, to its geographical extension (should it include the banks of the Tiber?) Indeed, they must be willfully and programmatically set aside. he made my knees and brow show reverence.

This is Dante’s point and it brings us back to the fundamental binary that structures his universe. down to his chest in a divided tress. ye who, counter the blind river, Permit us through thy sevenfold realm to go; could recognize the trembling of the sea. The implications of the saved figure of Cato for how we construe Dante’s relationship with classical antiquity are immense: the presence of Cato here means that pagans can, exceptionally, be saved.

Ulysses comes by sea, while Dante comes by land. This little island round about its base 74 in Utica la morte, ove lasciasti [3] We could refer to the animating spirit of these rules and regulations, which collectively organize Purgatory as an ”administrative unit” that is much like a vast monastic order, with Dante’s own apposite phrase: “la religïone / de la montagna” (the religion of the mountain [Purg.
