From Michelangelo to Raushenberg, artists from all genres have interpreted the writings of Dante Alighieri’s epic poem Inferno. This intensely visual poem takes us from being “lost in the dark woods,” to traveling downward through the nine circles of Hell, and finally to “once more to see the stars.” Dante broke from tradition by writing his poem in Italian rather than Latin as to give the work a broader appeal. My use of contemporary images to interpret this timeless work is intended to show that the poem is relevant not just to the masses but also to the ages.
