Climbing out of Hell, Dante in the "Purgatorio" reaches an island set in the southern ocean. This is Mount Purgatory, where he encounters the penitents who heroically endure their sufferings and speak of their time on Earth. Strange and fresh at every turn, Dantes narrative evokes the mountain landscape in terms of intense physical sensation, right up to the summit. There, before rising to heaven, he enters the Earthly Paradise, where he is movingly reunited with his lost love, Beatrice. This gloriously vivid portrayal of the search for redemption transformed the traditional conception of Purgatory and affirmed the dignity of human will and compassion.

Dante Alighieri(12651321) was born in Florence to a noble but impoverished family. His time was divided between political duties and poetry. The most famous of his poemsThe Divine Comedyand La Vita Nuovawere inspired by his meeting with Bice Portinari, whom he called Beatrice.
