2019: I am still impressed by a couple things after my second trip through the poetic Purgatory. Penance is no fun, while also not being biblical, so, whew. That Dante mixes literature, history, and imagination into such an extended poetic form really does make one give thanks to God for His common grace in sub-creators.

2016: I'm sure I would have enjoyed this even more if I knew Italian history, and if I believed in Purgatory. As it is, I'm glad to be through it and heading into Paradise.
