Dante's dramatic journey down the circles of Hell, up the mountain of Purgatory and through the spheres of Heaven in search of redemption - and his encounter with devils, monsters and the souls of sinners and saints - is one of the cornerstones of Western literature, the summit of medieval thinking and arguably the highest poetic achievement of all time.
