A Linguistic Exegesis of Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy with Its Literal English Translation : Purgatory Canto 11--- Canto 22



First and foremost Dante pays his humble homage to the Latin Language that is indubitably regarded as a parental language for the so-called Romance Languages such as Italian at the top of this list,French,Spanish,Portuguese,Romanian etc.In fact he even dedicates his filial fidelity to Virgil i.e. Pubius Vergilius Maro who is one of the greatest Ancient Roman poets and the author of Aeneid. As a natural conclusion of his adoration of Virgil as an awe-inspiring mentor in the ars poetica,Dante wholeheartedly entrusts to Virgil the care of his escorting through the hell in The Divine Comedy .
