Background

A description of the experience

Dante – The Divine Comedy INFERNO I

CANTO I

Half way along the road we have to go
I found myself obscured in a great forest
Bewildered, and I knew I had lost the way 
 
It is hard to say just what the forest was like
How wild and rough it was, how overpowering
Even to remember it makes me afraid

 So bitter it is, death itself is hardly more so,
Yet there was good there...
