Este ebook presenta "La divina Comedia ", con un sumario dinámico y detallado.

La Divina Comedia se considera una de las obras maestras de la literatura italiana y universal, escrito por Dante Alighieri. Se desconoce la fecha exacta en que fue escrito.

La Divina Comedia es un poema épico donde se mezcla la vida real con la sobrenatural, muestra la lucha entre la nada y la inmortalidad, una lucha donde se superponen tres reinos, tres mundos, logrando una suma de múltiples visuales que nunca se contradicen o se anulan. Los tres mundos infierno, purgatorio y paraíso reflejan tres modos de ser de la humanidad, en ellos se reflejan el vicio, el pasaje del vicio a la virtud y la condición de los hombres perfectos. Es entonces a través de los viciosos, penitentes y buenos que se revela la vida en todas sus formas, sus miserias y hazañas, pero también se muestra la vida que no es, la muerte, que tiene su propia vida, todo como una mezcla agraciada planteada por Dante, que se vuelve arquitecto de lo universal y de lo sublime.

Dante Alighieri (1265 –1321) fue un poeta italiano. Su obra maestra, la Divina comedia, es una de las obras fundamentales de la transición del pensamiento medieval al renacentista. Es considerada la obra maestra de la literatura italiana y una de las cumbres de la literatura universal.

Born Dante Alighieri in the spring of 1265 in Florence, Italy, he was known familiarly as Dante. His family was noble, but not wealthy, and Dante received the education accorded to gentlemen, studying poetry, philosophy, and theology. His first major work was Il Vita Nuova, The New Life. This brief collection of 31 poems, held together by a narrative sequence, celebrates the virtue and honor of Beatrice, Dante's ideal of beauty and purity. Beatrice was modeled after Bice di Folco Portinari, a beautiful woman Dante had met when he was nine years old and had worshipped from afar in spite of his own arranged marriage to Gemma Donati. Il Vita Nuova has a secure place in literary history: its vernacular language and mix of poetry with prose were new; and it serves as an introduction to Dante's masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, in which Beatrice figures prominently. The Divine Comedy is Dante's vision of the afterlife, broken into a trilogy of the Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise. Dante is given a guided tour of hell and purgatory by Virgil, the pagan Roman poet whom Dante greatly admired and imitated, and of heaven by Beatrice. The Inferno shows the souls who have been condemned to eternal torment, and included here are not only mythical and historical evil-doers, but Dante's enemies. The Purgatory reveals how souls who are not irreversibly sinful learn to be good through a spiritual purification. And The Paradise depicts further development of the just as they approach God. The Divine Comedy has been influential from Dante's day into modern times. The poem has endured not just because of its beauty and significance, but also because of its richness and piety as well as its occasionally humorous and vulgar treatment of the afterlife. In addition to his writing, Dante was active in politics. In 1302, after two years as a priore, or governor of Florence, he was exiled because of his support for the white guelfi, a moderate political party of which he was a member. After extensive travels, he stayed in Ravenna in 1319, completing The Divine Comedy there, until his death in 1321.
