Dante's Sonnet All My Thoughts in 14 lines a very impressive Sonnet, in the end he wrote about that Lady Pity for the help she brings.

Addition number 2: and at the edge of a heavy nerves-break down, I have read his words in all his poems: the factor of darkness (and in that period of his life) is constantly present.

Addition: I am afraid I am the only one with an entirely different opinion, a very honest opinion, observed from psychological point of few: Dante was constantly tormented by dark thoughts

My Conclusion: I don't know what kind of reputation the world famous Dante had, but he was in the right age as a poet, the era of Jeroen Bosch (famous Dutch painter of the same period) and that of Dante
