These lines stood out again from Canto IIIAnd he to me, as one experienced:
1) On abandons cowardice and suspicion"Here all suspicion needs must be abandoned,
All cowardice must needs be here extinct
In contrast with the above one
Before me there were no created things,
Only eterne, and I eternal last.
All hope abandon, ye who enter in
but then one must also
2) abondon hope??
Is HOPE here is reference to Pandora's box?
Because abonding the first two makes sense but why abondon hope too?
I am not clear on what does he mean?
wasn't this poem written in Tuscany Dialect?Languages diverse, horrible dialects,
Accents of anger, words of agony,
And voices high and hoarse, with sound of hands
why is it refered to here are HORRIBLE?
