Dante Makes Betrayal Sin
300 wordsAlthough it is hard to read Dantes triple rhyme, I am thrilled by the Infernos ambiguity and allegoric power. It is really a three-dimensional art. Just like Picasso in his paintings, Dante makes me think about the meaning of the situations and their implications. Moreover, it is as visual as masterpieces of Picasso.
