Some excellent cartoons about Dante and such.

Just a quick post to flag up some excellent comics by Julia Caterina Hartley, a fellow Dante fan who also stalks about Proust! Definitely worth a gander:

Julia's re-interpretation of Dante's encounter with Paolo and Francesca in Inferno V.

Julia’s re-interpretation of Dante’s encounter with Paolo and Francesca in Inferno V.

Inferno XV, 115-120 (as ever, from the the Hollander translation):

and I began: ‘Francesca, your torments

make me weep for grief and pity,

‘but tell me, in that season of sweet sighs,

how and by what signs did Love

acquaint you with your hesitant desires?’
