Poems take time. In high school, I had never really given poems the time they deserved, and so just prematurely wrote off the entire medium. As I’ve gotten older, I realize more their charms and wisdom. In order to help myself focus on a piece of work, I thought I’d try my hand at soundtracking a poem. Here is the first Canto of Dante’s Inferno. Hopefully, it’s also something that allows you to visit or re-visit a classic in a different light. You can see the youtube video of Canto I – Dante’s Inferno in full screen here, or just hit play below. (The music starts at about 20 seconds).
