From the Paper:"Dante's Inferno is often considered on of the richer poems addressing the afterlife. In the Inferno, the observer takes a guided journey through the descending levels of the underworld. The observer is Dante himself, and his guide is a heavenly spirit known as Virgil.
"Canto V is often used as a general reference to the Inferno, as Dante's greatest strengths as a writer are clearly seen within its text. Canto V, while brief, provides the reader with a brief perspective into a level of Hell that is designed to punish a lesser sinner. The Canto is fast-paced, where the reader is provided with the impression that the observer is quickly descending through the lesser levels of Hell in order to reach the more influential circles."
