Poems

  • Hydra: Nine heads of the Hydra stand for foul thoughts and farewells. Find out more about severing and lightning poison with Giuseppe Bonaccorso’s poem.
  • Australia: Immerse yourself in a journey with a traveler and her companion in an exploration of existential distance in love relationships.
  • To you: In a world characterized by well-wishers and moralists, a raucous sun reveals the impossibility of dreaming of heaven. What exam will the theorists face? Perhaps they will begin to read Nietzsche and search for their true selves.
  • Someone once: Examine the unforgiving, slow morning blue and discover how human history, often trapped in immutability, can continuously evolve.
  • I would like to forget: Become the master of your destiny: a hymn to virtue to challenge the accumulated notions, morals, and uncertainties that limit us and embark on a journey of true freedom, just like Odysseus.
  • An ancient motif: Trembling, under the sun, an ancient motif: a mysterious requiem. Remember the ivory gulls as they took flight? It laughs scampishly at those remnants of memory — unfathomable humanity in an incomprehensible song of crickets.
  • I want to dream of a sleeping reality: Let’s discover in the verses how the will to power (Nietzsche) to overcome an unnatural reality can make one want to dream of a world oblivious to man’s self-imposed rules.
  • Faces of boredom study my features: Discover existential boredom in this poem and explore this concept of emptiness and disconnection through the eyes of anguish.

Poetic Prose

  • In Praise of Absinthe: Vibrant absinthe to captivate your senses. Drop by drop, explore the depths of poetic prose dedicated to Absinthe. Unveil a night of stars with the green fairy. Embrace a seductive flame without fire. Infuse your soul with the February fog and the green goddess.
  • Prayer of the Last Man: A story of sacrifice and forgiveness: discover the hymn to human greatness. The prayer that the last man recites before his death is: “My Father, do not forgive them.
  • I would like to thank: Come dance with the clouds! Poetic prose of thanksgiving for all that nature unknowingly gives and is often overlooked.
  • I would like to… The emptiness that hypnotizes the gods: I would like to walk along a stream, sleep to death, and make nature laugh: discover this poetic prose in praise of emptiness!
  • Bacchus, Tobacco, and Venus: over the centuries faithful: Enter the universe of extravagance and the pleasures of life! A hymn to vice that pierces moralism and raises praise to the joy of living!

Literary Considerations about the Divine Comedy – A poetic cornerstone!

The Divine Comedy, written by Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the 14th century, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most famous and influential literary works. This epic poem, divided into three parts – Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso – explores the journey of the main character, Dante himself, through Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.

The Divine Comedy’s impact on Western literature cannot be underestimated. It served as a masterful example of poetic expression. It laid the foundation for countless literary works that followed. Dante’s vivid imagery, intricate narrative structure, and profound exploration of human nature continue to fascinate readers today.

The Divine Comedy introduced the concept of allegory into mainstream literature, using vivid descriptions of hellish punishments and divine rewards to convey moral and spiritual lessons. This narrative technique would later be adopted and adapted by numerous authors, including John Milton in Paradise Lost and CS Lewis in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Moreover, the influence of The Divine Comedy extends beyond the realm of literature. It has inspired countless visual artists, musicians, and filmmakers. Painters such as William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Salvador Dalí have created beautiful works of art based on Dante’s vision. Composers such as Franz Liszt and Igor Stravinsky have composed musical pieces inspired by the poem. Modern filmmakers like Federico Fellini and Terry Gilliam have also drawn inspiration from Dante’s epic.

In conclusion, The Divine Comedy is a testament to literature’s power to transcend time and culture. Its impact on Western literature and the arts is immeasurable, and its themes of sin, redemption, and the human condition continue to resonate with readers and artists alike. It is a masterpiece that will always be treasured and studied.
