Book Description

You get the full original text of this book interwoven with a smart, plain-spoken guide to the characters, quotes, themes, symbols, and more from Shmoop. Purgatorio was published sometime between 1307 to 1308 and it constitutes the second part of the Italian politician Dante Alighieri’s epic poem the Divine Comedy. Having led us through his experiences in Hell through Inferno, our narrator, Dante, now tells us about his endeavors to cleanse himself in Purgatory. While in Purgatory, he prepares to visit Heaven. As a text, Purgatorio has always paled in comparison to the violence and bitterness of the Inferno. However, Purgatorio introduces an important topic largely ignored in the previous part of the Divine Comedy – Dante’s love for a childhood sweetheart named Beatrice.Designed exclusively for Kindle readers, Shmoop Classics for Kindle offer the original text of some of the greatest works of literature with a built-in interactive guide to help you dig deep into the characters, symbols, themes, and big questions of the book. For the student and the life-long learner alike, take your classroom on the road and build your brain muscles daily. No need to weigh your backpack down, no need to waste paper, no need to get sleepy in class.
