Botticelli and Dante

MarginaliaJimmy RiordanComment
I have a book of Botticelli's drawings for Dante's Inferno, elaborating the text, descriptions of earth, divine, and passages, similar in many ways to the aspects of the Jammes' text pursuing narratives describing a path about spirituality, life and death, and a cyclical nature to action; thought and effect.
this is a depiction of hell- with layers describing different levels- but hell here is a cold place, icy in fact, the descriptions are incredible.
this one is also beautiful, the dark wood, perhaps particularly interesting to the thought form of the woods and beasts
