Dante's lengthy narrative poem The Divine Comedy ostensibly relates the tale of his journeys through hell, purgatory and heaven - each section is named after a section of his journey, so the three sections of the Divine Comedy are 'Inferno' (hell), 'Purgatorio' (purgatory) and 'Paradiso' (heaven).
Pictured above is a scene from Purgatorio, Dante dreams he is Ganymede, abducted by the eagle (who as we know, really is Jupiter/Zeus in disguise). Dante's actually being taken to Purgatory by St Lucy, but there you go
My teacher - that good man - began to speak:
'Look on, Behold the one who, sword in hand,
precedes, as their true lord, the other three.
This is that sovereign Homer, poet.
Horace the satirist is next to come,
Ovid is third, Then (see!) there is Lucan.
All these, by right, must duly share with me
the name that sounded in that single voice.
They do me honour thus, and thus do well.'
And so I saw, assembling there as one,
the lovely college of that lord of song
whose verses soar like eagles over all.
Inferno, Canto 4 lines 85 - 96 (translation by Robin Fitzpatrick, Penguin Classics 2006)
But Homer is the 'sovereign Homer'! Yes, yes indeed.
