The Divine Comedy is an epic allegory in verse. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature.
The poem is written in the first person and describes Dante's travels through the three realms of the dead - Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise. This is an allegorical representation of the soul's journey towards God. Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially Thomistic philosophy and the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas.
