The Paradiso

Dissolved in visions
May 12th, 2014
Dante's verse has become almost completely abstract in the end, without recognizable people or settings. He is answering for his own life, justifying his own wish to take a place among the saintly. I cannot think of any comparable attempt to do this in art.
