"To tell about the good I found there," Dante writes in the opening lines of Inferno, "I will also recount the other things I saw." And so generations of artists have attempted to follow Dante on his mystical journey and bring to our eyes what Dante alone witnessed through his. Their illustrations help us see the dark wood, and sometimes through it to deeper meanings beyond.
