The Divine Comedy

by Michael Brookes
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 23/11/2013

On Good Friday ‘s eve I am assailed by three beasts in a wood black with sin, ahead I see a mountain, haloed by promised salvation. Through inferno’s circles Virgil’s wisdom leads me through punishments most poetic.

Up the mountain created by Satan’s fall we climb. On this holy day of Christ’s resurrection we pass through the terraces, one for each of the sins most deadly.

Finally into paradise I rise and greeted by Beatrice, my guide through the spheres of the cosmos. In the final sphere I understand God’s love, a love so complete that it moves the stars.
