Now I've truly seen
A swashbuckling Dante Alighieri, leaping around with a horned helmet on his head... I guess I'm just too
(rigid, square...) for this kind of thing.

Now it's M's son Patrik who has a deep seated interest in this game and the knock on is that he has been asking me about Dante.
So you and I might consider ourselves square but I am astounded that this next generation is going to keep Inferno alive and not just by playing this game but by Asking.For.The.Book. and wanting to know the back story.
My Flabber has been Ghasted.
His sister has just spent a year studying art in Florence and she cannot tell you anything more about that city except which cafe serves the best chocolate and where the best clothes shops are. "Ah but the art" I hear you say and I reply "Manga"
Patrik is studying CGI at a private school in Göteborg and does not hit normal educational art/history/literature curriculum so it's a double joy that we have been discussing Beatrice
