Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello

(September 30th 1959 / Genoa (Italy))

AAH) The Origins, Beatrice


'If one has not adult wits
About love flame, brother,
His eyes can not see this truth'
Dante

In the eight song of 'Paradiso' Dante states the matter,
One must do the work one has been created for.
Let's go back to the seventh song of that book of 'The Divine Comedy',
Dante worries about the murder of Jesus Christ,
If man killed his God, how can he become immortal?
Opportunely Beatrice is near the poet in trouble,
Quiets the poet's soul afflicted with feelings of guilt,
The return to the immortality of the Earthly Paradise is in the God's hands,
The way to God has to be covered with a girl's love.

    I find it extremely interesting your interpretation of Dante's Divine comedy, especially in the part where Beatrice quiets the poet's soul afflicted with feelings of guilt and this becomes a clue to his rescue, or just a clue to the riddle 'The way to God has to be covered with a girl's love'. It is a quite intriguing work. Best regards, one (Report) Reply
