me too! it reminds me of 4th year high school english.
where was this taken? inferno? purgatorio? paradiso?

google...

inferno.

it is ironic that people who are supposedly "educated" choose uncivilized ways when dealing with things. when people in government are corrupt, when people destroy nature, when people who say that they are virtuous condemn you for who you are..we should not follow their ways.
this work of dante and other old works of literature hold a lot of lessons which are enduring. i am a progressivist by nature but i still give due respect to these works.

@paci<<sori..nakalimutan ko pala ilagay na from Inferno siya...

am so happy may mga nakakarelate...if you'll notice, i really love Dante's The Divine Comedy. my favorite part is Inferno. you can ready my own version of Inferno if you want. juz look for it on my archive.

anyway..thank u so much sa pag-follow!!!

P.S.
your insights are awesome!

that is why we have the google to help. heehee. =)

i like the part of inferno wherein the different planes of hell were described. each plane for each deadly sin. i know a comedy isn't exactly funny but a story with a happy ending but i think the epic earned that "comedy" part in its title because of inferno.
