Ivan Arguelles: Inferno
Poetry. "...one has to read this work with a new mind-set. Instead of looking for the neat moral conclusion, one has to allow oneself to be 'drowned' in the ocean of this stunning and protean work and be receptive to all the ambiguities and contradictions it contains. One should not look for an 'end' to it, for it is endless. You can never 'finish' reading it, but now you must 'start'!"
--Dr. John M. Bennett.
