CANTO V - Lust

In Dante's journey through the second circle of Hell, he encounters the punishment for those who let passion reign over reason. Here, King Minos serves as the infernal judge, assigning each sinner their rightful place. The violent storm that ravages the circle represents the overpowering blizzards of passion in life. Dante skillfully includes relatable characters and uses earthly analogies to bring his vision to life.
