This paper examines how these two literary works are both thought-provoking accounts of man's relationship with God. While both spiritual journeys recognize the grace of God, each author uses different techniques to guide the reader to make his or her own decisions. The writer relates that, while "The Divine Comedy" is a fictional account with the reader as the intended audience, "Confessions" is based on Augustine's personal conversion experience and is written not only for the reader, but for God as well.
