Description:

This paper considers whether the punishments meted out in Dante's "Inferno" are appropriate for the sins in question. The paper discusses Dante's layout of a complete system of justice and the severity of the penalties imposed upon sinners.

From the Paper:

"In the "Inferno" by Dante Alighieri, readers are introduced to the various rings of Hell and the sinners who inhabit them. Dante works to layout a complete system of justice so that those who have sinned are punished in an appropriate manner. Indeed Dante demonstrates quite an imagination as he seeks to establish a correlation between the sin that has been committed and the punishment that takes place. In most cases there is a sense that the punishment fits the crime."
