Artist's Description

Dante’s Inferno, Canto III
Translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1867

Through me the way into the suffering city,
Through me the way to the eternal pain,
Through me the way that runs among the lost.

Justice urged on my high artificer;
My maker was divine authority,
The highest wisdom, and the primal love.

Before me nothing but eternal things were made,
And I endure eternally.
Abandon every hope, ye who enter here."

These words in sombre colour I beheld
Written upon the summit of a gate;
Whence I: "Their sense is, Master, hard to me!


Dante’s Inferno, Canto III
Translated by the Reverend H. F. Cary, 1814

Through me you pass into the city of woe
Through me you pass into eternal pain
Through me among the people lost for aye.

Justice the founder of my fabric mov’d
To rear me was the task of power divine,
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.

Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Such characters in colour dim I mark’d
Over a portal’s lofty arch inscrib’d:
Whereat I thus: Master, these words import.
