Dantes Inforno book cover image

O ye who have undistempered intellects,
               Observe the doctrine that conceals itself
Beneath the veil of the mysterious verses!

Inferno: Canto IX


Note:  The image appears on the Barnes & Noble Classics 2008 hardcover edition of Dante’s The Divine Comedy in the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow translation with reproductions of Gustave Dore’s engravings from the 1867 edition.
