In Dante's cosmos, the “fixed stars” form an eighth or “crystalline” sphere inside
which the seven planetary spheres are nested. This eighth sphere is in turn
enclosed by the primum mobile (“first mover”), the ninth sphere, which imparts
motion to all those below. See Fig. 28 on p.

Chaucer does translate and write allegory, as in, respectively, The Roman de la
Rose and the part subtitled "the story" in The Complaint of Mars; but one does not
think of him as a great allegorist like Dante, Langland, or Spenser. Chapter 1 1.

Now we are going to look at the three cantos in the eighth sphere of Dante's
cosmos, the heaven of the fixed stars. We are beyond the planets, in a sphere
where Dante discusses the three theological virtues—so called to distinguish
them from the four cardinal virtues that Christians share with the classical
tradition, fortitude, prudence, temperance, and justice—of faith, hope, and love (
or charity). These are the virtues that deal with the understanding of the divine;
they open up this ...

C. S. Lewis read Dante's Inferno when he was in his teens, and he read
Purgatory when he was in a hospital recovering from wounds received in the
inferno of World War One. When he was twenty-three he mentioned in ... It is like
the stars — endless mathematical subtility of orb, cycle, epicycle and ecliptic,
unthinkable & unpicturable yet at the same time the freedom and liquidity of
empty space and the triumphant certainty of movement. I should describe it as

I wished to see how the image was fitted to the circle and how it has its place
there; but my own wings were not sufficient for that, had not my mind been
smitten by a flash wherein came its wish. Here power failed the high phantasy;

The Divine Comedy. And I would like to suggest herein begins new life. Dante's

Halfway through Canto xxxiv Dante and Virgil climb past Lucifer and, through a
narrow passage, emerge - at the end of the canto - on the other side of the world,
on the shore of the Mountain of Purgatory, and finally see the stars again. Dante ...
