Written by DANTE ALIGHIERI
The Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia) is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature.
 It is divided into three parts, the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.
On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven;but at a deeper level, it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God.
The work was originally simply titled Comedìa and was later christened  Divina by  Giovanni Boccaccio.
The Divine Comedy is composed of 14,233 lines that are divided into three canticas (Ital. pl. cantiche)—Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory), and Paradiso  (Paradise)—each consisting of 33 cantos (Ital. pl. canti).
First Part:  INFERNO
The poem tells of Dante's journey through the three realms of the dead, lasting from the night before Good Friday to the Wednesday after Easter in the spring of 1300.
Dante is at last rescued by Virgil, and the two of them begin their journey to the underworld.
 Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice; for example, fortune-tellers have to walk with their heads on backwards, unable to see what is ahead, because that was what they had tried to do in life:  Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice; for example, fortune-tellers have to walk with their heads on backwards, unable to see what is ahead, because that was what they had tried to do in life:  Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice; for example, fortune-tellers have to walk with their heads on backwards, unable to see what is ahead, because that was what they had tried to do in life:  Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice; for example, fortune-tellers have to walk with their heads on backwards, unable to see what is ahead, because that was what they had tried to do in life:  Each sin's punishment in Inferno is a contrapasso, a symbolic instance of poetic justice;
Second part:  PURGATORIO
Having survived the depths of Hell, Dante and Virgil ascend out of the undergloom, to the Mountain of Purgatory on the far side of the world.
 Beatrice, Dante's ideal woman, guides him through PURGATORY.  Beatrice was a Florentine woman whom he had met in childhood and admired from afar in the mode of the then-fashionable courtly love tradition which is highlighted in Dante's earlier work La Vita Nuova.
 The core seven sins within purgatory correspond to a moral scheme of love perverted, subdivided into three groups corresponding to excessive love (Lust, Gluttony, Greed), deficient love (Sloth), and malicious love (Wrath, Envy, Pride).
Third Part:  PARADISO
After an initial ascension, Beatrice guides Dante through the nine celestial spheres of Heaven.
 While the structures of the Inferno and Purgatorio were based on different classifications of sin, the structure of the Paradiso is based on the four cardinal virtues and the three theological virtues.
FAITH HOPE LOVE
The ninth circle, or Premium Mobile (corresponding to Medieval astronomy of Geocentricism)contains the angels, creatures never poisoned by original sin.
Topping them all is the Empyrean that contains the essence of God, completing the 9 fold division to 10.
Dante meets and converses with several great saints of the Church, including Thomas Aquinas, Bonaventure, Saint Peter, and St. John.
The Divine Comedy finishes with Dante seeing the Triune God. 
 In a flash of understanding, which he cannot express, Dante finally understands the mystery of Christ's divinity and humanity, and his soul becomes aligned with God's love: But already my desire and my will were being turned like a wheel, all at one speed,by the Love which moves the sun and the other stars.
