Infatti, le cellule tumorali singenici MADB , che sono risultati essere resistenti alla circolazione e leucociti splenici, hanno dimostrato di essere lisate dalle cellule MP-NK 3,8. Purificata e attivi MP-leucociti sono inaccessibili attraverso i metodi di raccolta standard dei leucociti dai polmoni, che si basano sulla macinazione tessuto polmonare o degradazione biologica 9. Il nostro approccio ha due grandi vantaggi rispetto agli approcci di lavorazione dei tessuti.
Innanzitutto, l'approccio perfusione raccoglie selettivamente MP-leucociti, separandole da altre cellule che provengono dal parenchima polmonare, interstiziale, e compar bronco-alveolaretments. I polmoni sono un importante organo bersaglio per le metastasi del cancro e per varie malattie infettive. Tutte le cellule maligne circolanti e cellule infettate passano attraverso i capillari polmonari, dove devono deformarsi e interagire con le cellule endoteliali dei capillari e leucociti residenti.
In queste condizioni, le cellule circolanti possono essere facilmente bersaglio di MP-leucociti residenti. Subscription Required. Please recommend JoVE to your librarian. La mostra MP-vano una diversa composizione dei leucociti sottoinsieme rispetto ai leucociti circolanti. Citometria a flusso di analisi, sottopopolazioni di leucociti sono stati identificati e quantificati per caratterizzare la composizione sia del circolante e leucociti MP.
Granulociti e linfociti sono stati identificati sulla base disperde in avanti e laterali. Resa cella nel vano MP di questo ceppo costituisce di circa 3 milioni di leucociti Figura 1. All'interno delle cellule NK, due sottopopolazioni sono evidenti, in base alle dimensioni delle cellule. Figura 1. Figura 2. Figura 3. Il metodo qui presentata consente la raccolta selettiva e studiando della popolazione unica di MP-leucociti. Pertanto, leucociti splenici o circolanti non devono essere considerati come il gold standard o la popolazione di default per riflettere lo stato immunologico, e studi sull'uomo che comcomunemente si basano esclusivamente su dovrebbero essere interpretati con cautela leucociti circolanti.
Come la prima porzione di perfusato polmone sono contaminati con il sangue cardiaca, devono essere scartati come dimostrato. Inoltre, si raccomanda di bloccare la vena cava con una pinza emostatica non dentata, per evitare perfusione all'indietro del fegato, soprattutto se si vuole raccogliere anche marginating cellule epatiche attraverso successive perfusione del fegato. Diversi malfunzionamenti possono verificarsi durante l'esecuzione di questa procedura, ma la maggior parte di loro sono correggibili. Se un ago scivola fuori, stop la pompa peristaltica, ri-inserire l'ago nel suo sito di penetrazione originale, e riavviare la pompa.
Se il flusso di raccolta cessa, fermare la pressione di vuoto di raccolta, spostare l'ago nel ventricolo, e riavviare la collezione. Il metodo descritto permette una raccolta selettiva della popolazione leucocitaria MP in un procedimento relativamente semplice. E 'ancora noto se le cellule MP, che risiedono nel capill polmoneAriete su cellule di raccolta, hanno maturato nei polmoni, o se avrebbe mantenuto le loro caratteristiche in uscita dall'impianto di polmoni.

It is printed in clear type, and upon strong paper ; not paged or numbered. There are almost no points ; and no capital letters, except at the commence- ment of the Terzine, and in a very small number of the proper names. XV ings. All the Bibliographers speak of it, and also of two other editions that were printed later in the same year. In particular, the account which M. Xoi leggiauamo ungiomo perdiletto dilancialotto come amor loetriiiBe soli erauamo et senzalcim sospetto Ibid, V. The next remarkable edition that I have had opportunities of examining, also in the Museum, is that of Vendehn da Spira, printed at Venice in The epithet Divina occurs in no edition of the 15th century; but at the end of this of Yendelin, in some vehement helpless verses, we find the expression, inclito et diuo dante alleghieri Fio- rentin poeta ; and later editions speak of the excelso, glo- Rioso, DiviNO, or YENERABiLE poeta Fiorcntino, long earliest editions, would be very acceptable; and the Museum now poflseases good copies of them all.
The text is in general more accurate than that of Numeister; and is accompanied by a long com- ment, which the title — falsely as we. I shall give qne specimen. Inf, V. For if we consider the subject thereof, at the beginning it is horrible and fetid, being Hell ; at the end prosperous, desirable, and grateful, being Paradise. And if we consider the style of speech, that style is remiss and hum- ble, being the vulgar speech, in which even the women talk with one another.
Wherefore it is evident why the work is called a Comedy. XVU There are at least two copies of it in the Museum : one beautifully printed on parchment, the other on the strong paper of those times. It is magnificent both in size and form ; but greatly inferior to the Milan edition in point of correctness. In the best copy of the Museum I find no fewer than fifteen instances in which Tcrses or whole Terzine are left out, besides other errors.
In all the copies I have seen, there are at least Two Engravings, betiding the fiirst and second cantos of the poem, while large blank spaces are left above all the other cantos; and in some rare copies as many as Twenty are found, the last seventeen or eighteen of which seem to be glued upon those blank spaces. The Letter to Can Grande, as given in the London edition of torn. I quote from Fraticelli's edition. The com- ment of Landino, though reprinted more than fifteen times at Venice and elsewhere, was never again printed at Florence.
It is the last edition from which I shall quote a specimen. After these folio editions of the 1. I have had these two editions constantly at hand, and have found the last of them even more correct than the other. It is also yery correct. My copy contains Seven woodcuts, along vith the Dialogae at the end, though only Six are spoken of by M. The words flow together in it, as in the editions of the fifteenth century, though the text seems mainly taken from the Aldine.
The first edition with the title of Divina Com- media is said to be the one printed at Venice in , by Bernardino Stagnino de Monferra. It has become very scarce ; and I have not been able to get sight of it to verify the assertion. But in the neat and rare little Venice edi- tion of , by Gabriel Giolito di Ferrarii, of which there is a copy in the Museum, I do find that title. The three Venetian editions of , , and , all in folio, with the comments of Landino and Vel- lutello and many useful woodcuts, published by Giovam- battista Sessa and his Brothers, are simply and beautifully, and on the whole very correctly printed.
They are called Edizioni del Gatto, from the printer's mark of a Cat with prey, at each important stage of the work ; and then of a grave larger Cat, sitting at the end of it : or Edizioni del Gran Naso, from the striking portrait of Dante on the title- page. The text of them is very nearly the same as the Aldine, only a little modernised in spelling and punctuation. I have used the edition of Commedia, in a somewhat shabby and very incorrect little volume. The text given by the Cniscan Academy was first thoroughly corrected in , by G.
Zatta's large Venetian edition of , rather celebrated in this country, takes ihe text of Volpi with more or less fidelity. It is gaudy, pretentious, and on the whole decidedly ugly "with abundant engravings. No edition of the Divina Commedia had been permitted at Rome, till Lombardi's appeared in , con licenza de' Superiori, It is in three volumes quarto, with long comment ; and is a good, faithful, honest edition, the result of many years' labour.
The text of it is taken from the Nidobeatine of ; or rather, the Cruscan text, as given by Volpi in the Edizione Cominiana, is altered on the authority of the Nidobeatine, and of various mss. The worthy Friar gives only his initials, F. Fra Baldtissare Lombardi, minor conveniuak on the title-page. The magnificent foUo edition of Bodoni, edited by G. Dionisi — a learned, but perverse and quarrel- some, admirer of Dante — was printed at Parma in XXI ingB from a parchment ms. Hie last volume contains a very judicious and useful selection of brief notes, many of them taken from the old manuscript commentaries which are not generally acces- sible.
In truth, it is the best selection that has hitherto been made ; and well deserves to be reprinted in a separate and more accessible form. The text and comment of Lombardi are given in the Roman editions of and , and in the Paduan of , with numerous additional notes, readings, and "illustrations" — forming a vast jungle, from which the most experienced readers of Dante may well find it hard to extricate themselves. The two last of these edi- tions, however, are indispensably necessary for any one who undertakes to meet the difficulties of explaining or editing the Divina Commedia, though they are probably the worst that could be recommended to any serious stu- dent of it.
It is very valuable on account of the number of accurate references that it contains. Foscolo died on the 14th of September , and lies buried in the little cemetery at Chiswick. English readers will dislike the angry, disjointed, and acrid style of that Discourse ; and quiet students of Dante will be able to point out various errors, exaggerations, and anachronisms; but it ought to be remembered that poor Foscolo had to remove very large quantities of deep-settled rubbish, and deal with a class of his countrymen upon whom any other style would have produced less effect.
And though he never got fairly beyond the morbid Lettere di Jacopo OrtiSy and had, as his Editor says, formed a most incomplete idea of Dante, let us at least thank him for what he did do so zealously and faithfully. By accurate citation of every authority within his reach, he cleared the way for finally determining the text of the great Poem ; and all the editions of it, that have been published since the appearance of his, contain many of the readings and re- storations which he contended for.
The plan that has been adopted for fixing the Text here given, may be stated very briefly. Those notes of Foscolo, in various instances, failed to prove the propriety of changes he had introduced; and were sometimes found defective in their citations. XXIU to make the same laborious comparisons; and, on the whole — after what has been done by Foscolo and others — there seem sufficient materials for determming the text of the great Poem.
Would that we had as sure and per- fect a text of our own Shakspeare! I refer to his work for an account of them, and shall here notice only a few of the most remarkable. The earliest of all comments seems to be that of Jacopo, Dante's son, written in the year It extends no farther than the Inferno, in the only complete ms.
The Proem begins thus : Per do che delfrutto universale, novel- lamenie dato al mondo per lo illustro filosofo e poeta dante aUighieri fiorentino, con pin agevolezza si possa conoscere And, in the explanation of Canto xxi. XXV Beggio, who has carefully examined the ms. Jacopo della Lana, of Bologna, is the next commentator in point of date. Little is known of him, though no fewer than fifty-two different mss.
Ca- nonici. Both these translations are the same in the Purgatorio and Paradiso ; and the whole translation in the Parisian ms. And, with the exception of a few alterations and additions, chiefly in the first canto of the Inferno, the comment in the Nido- beatine edition see p. In cases of difficulty, I have often consulted both, and got little or nothing but what was to be had from other sources.
There are twenty-two mss. It contains long discussions, very learned for the time at which they were written, but now superfluous and extremdy wearisome. In some places, owing to defects of the ms. Here and there it is brief and appropriate, beyond any other of the old comments, and in reality an Ottimo Cotaento. The expression, " amongst us," in the note I have given at p. It is written with a striking kind of dignity and reserve ; and has more meaning than appears at first sight.
XXTU early comments. And, in spite of the far-fetched subtleties of Dionisi and others, I see no Talid reason for doobting that it is justly ascribed to Dante's son. There are twelve M Pietro died in , after having practised law, and filled the office of Chief Judge, at Verona, for many years with good acceptance and success.
In August , the republic of Florence resolved to set apart an annual sum of one hundred gold florens for Lectures on Dante; and Boccaccio was the first person appointed to deliver them. He began in October of that same year, in the church of San Stefano, near the Fonte Vecchio ; and continued till the time of his death in His comment contains the substance of those lectures, and goes no farther than the 17th verse of canto xvii. It is written in his usual lively, pleasant style; and, though extremely diffuse, it is a genial and valuable comment, and gives one the sensation of having parted from a good friend when it suddenly ends.
Flo- rence, , in three octavo volumes.
Lord Vernon is, or has been, getting another comment of the 14th century, "fahely attributed to Boccaccio," printed at Florence. After the commentary of Boccaccio, comes that of his pupil and intimate friend, Benvenuto da ImolOf who is supposed to have delivered lectures on Dante at Bologna in ; and certainly he himself Infem. Angelo described by Dante. Only the part of it which relates to the Inferno has come down to us. This was first published at Marseilles in — not " en- tire," as M.
It is a good, well-arranged commentary, and, amongst other things, explains the literal sense with much distinctness. XXIX media, first published in , and often republished, shews what a weight of speech, in regard to the great Poety could be borne by men in those days. It is very learned, and often unspeakably tedious; and has few or none of those brief appropriate passages which are found in the Ottimo Comento ; but contains many authentic and indispensable details respecting the manners, and customs, and families of Florence.
The briefer commentary of VeUuteUo waa first printed in at Venice; and, like his commentary on Petrarch, it is dull, and heavy, and generally of httle practical value. They are good, but far too short. The Notes of TwqwUo Tasao — chiefly relating to words and phrases— were first published complete in the Opere di Tas8o tom.
Pisa, , edited by Prof. The best commentary of the 16th century is that of Bernardino Daniello of Lucca, printed at Venice in ; and, greatly to the discredit of Italians, never again re- printed. They are given in many subsequent editions ; and at last, combined in one general Index, they occupy nearly pages of the fourth volume of Foscolo's edition, published in It is written in the true spirit of a Jesuit, and with less than the usual learning ; and has been too frequently reproduced in later editions.
It is imposBible to mention all the other commentaries of the 18th century. He ought not to have spoken in such a way of Lombardi: no difference of opinion can justify the language he uses. And why should poor Commentators hate and abuse each other? Would it not be far wiser to meet on some common footing of respect, or at lowest of mutual silence? Is there not enough, and infinitely more than enough, for them all in the great Masters they seek to elucidate? Only one thing is unpardonable, and that is, when commentators become sham commentators, and merely seek to elucidate themselves.
This account concludes by recommending the Paduan edition of to all readers who desire to have fall specimens of discordant commentary : they will there find abundant, a id apparently aimless, quotations from more than thirty different authors. This is more especially true in regard to the great Poem, which stands as the mature representative of his genius, the essence and consummation of all that he had endeavoured and attained.
The whole time-basis of his mighty song has be- come dim and cold. The names and events, which once stirred and inflamed the thoughts of all readers, lie far distant, and have little or no intrinsic interest for us. Most of them have grown so dark and shadowy, that they cannot by any effort be made to dwell in our memories ; and so, by demandiog constant notes and references, they serve only to interrupt our reading, and prevent us from rising to the fall height and warmth of the subject. But it is likewise distinguished for its intense brevity, its multiform signi- ficance ; and can have had no superfluous words even for the nearest contemporaries.
It is like the language of a brother, whose position and feelings we are understood to know in detail ; and who handles only the summits of things with us, leaving to us all the filling- up of circumstances, and the minuter shades and ramifica- tions of meaning. They may be looked into more or less extensively from curiosity, and consulted for the sake of minute details of persons and things which are not to be found elsewhere ; but no man in a healthy state of mind can now read them without being forced to it as a duty. In regard to all public events of Dante's time, the contemporary historians are much safer and better guides.
He died in , when Dante was only sixteen years of age. The best editions of Malespini are the Giuntme of and The other Florentine edition, of , omits important passages relating to the Popes and their avarice and simony.
Italian Academies and Their Networks, 1525–1700
Giovanni Villani began his CVontca, as he himself tells us lib. It is written in a most naive, racy, honest style. Villani is known to have been of the Guelph party; visited France and the Netherlands in ; was one of the Priors of Florence in 1,, and the Ambas- sador at Bologna in : and, at various other times, he filled high offices in his native city. Of the Popes he says all the good he can in honesty; and sometimes palliates, but never conceals their vices. Next to Dante himself, he is the most impartial and trustworthy authority we have; and looking from different points of view, each with his own peculiar fidelity and earnestness, they mutually and uninten- tionally confirm one another.
The best edition of Villani is that of Florence, published by Magheri in 8 vols. The litoria Fiorentina di Dino Compagni is also good, but very fiBgmentary; and has been of little use compared with those of Malespini and Villani. In truth, very few of the books that have been written on the subject seem to have cost their authors any serious thought at all or been honestly intended for the purpose of illustrating Dante. Real difficulties are passed o?
The plainest passages, on the contrary, are overladen with useless discussions; and fresh conceits are started, and multiplied and pursued with an ostentatious and very cheap display of learning. In the whole range of literature, it might perhaps be difficult to find any books so painfully void of ail thought, and so loudly difiPiise, as the most part of those which modem Italians have written concerning the greatest man their country has produced.
Every thing relating to him has been darkened and entangled with doubts; lus character and works are encumbered and overladen with mere rubbish, collected and heaped upon them without any just criticism or discrimination. But since the time of Lombardi, and more especially of Foscolo — whose anger will be excused by those who know what he had to deal with — a better spirit seems to have arisen among the countrymen of Dante. XXXV It only remains for me to add, that the comment given in the present Tolnme is defined and limited by one simple nde.
The earliest is in barbarous Latin hexameters, line for line, by one Matteo Ronto " Matheus Rampto" , a Benedictine monk of Venetian parents, who died in In a kind of Elegy, at the end of the Paradiso, the good monk speaks of the mournful drudgeries inflicted on him for having made this translation, which had occupied him many years. It is not without real warmth; and must have been begun at least a very short time after Dante's death, which took place in It still exists complete in two MSB.
Specimens of it will be found in the work of M. The only other Latin translation I shall here mention is that of the Ahhate dalla Piazza, also in hexameters, and without notes — the result of some twenty years' labour. The author died at Vicenza in ; and it was first published at Leipzig only a few months ago. It is incomparably the best Latin transla- tion, and may safely be commended to all students of Dante. In the prefoce, written by Professor C. Witte, the whole story of Francesca is given from the version of Matteo Ronto, and from others of more recent date.
The Spaniards have but one translation, and that ends with the Inferno. A remarkable translation, and tolerably literal, considering the complicated verse and rhyme in which it is written. Witte, in the preface mentioned above, gives the story of Francesca from it; and also from two French translations of nearly the same date mss.
The first published French translation is that of Gran- gier 3 vols. It is little esteemed, except by ravenous collectors of old books. The long-established fatal plan of curtailing, diluting, and altering every thing so as to suit the current taste, is followed with Dante too. The prose translation by Angela Fiorentino, an Italian residing at Paris, is the only exception : it is in general very faithful and literal; but passes over the difficulties too lightly, and frequently omits the little words and phrases that are hardest to translate.
It was first published in The latest translation Paris, , by A. Brizeux, in a kind of rhythmic prose, unhappily returns to the old method above described ; and is often very feeble and very wide of the Original. The Germans have eight complete translations, some of them in prose ; and all, so far as I have seen, remark- ably faithful. That of K. XXXVll from , when it was first published entire, to It is in blank verse — in good, racy, clear German ; and ex- actly of the same length as the Original. The first Ten Cantos of it were privately printed in ; and then, in , the whole translation of the Inferno and Porga- torio published at Leipzig in two quarto volumes.
Another very remarkable translation one vol. Kopisch, a German artist and poet of some celebrity, who spent several years in Italy. It is also in blank verse, printed line for line along with the Italian Text, and is the most literal translation hitherto published. The German of it might often be hard to understand with- out the Italian, and the verse is of necessity somewhat flat and helpless ; but no such translation could have been made or attempted in any other modem language.
Of our own Translations it is unnecessary to say much, as they are accessible to every one. Boyd's was made in the last century, under wants and circumstances which no longer exist; and it seems to have become obsolete. Gary's is a most excellent translation of its kind : perhaps there is none better in our language. Wright's is in many places very spirited; and even where the necessities of verse hinder him from giving the true sense, you may frequently remark that he has thoroughly understood it.
The Americans have only a translation of the first ten cantos of the Inferno Boston, ; and that also is very faithful in its way, and ought to be continued. But Dante also enumerates them in the second Treatise and fourth chapter of his ConviiOj or Banquet; and mentions the order in which they come — following the Ancient Astronomical System, which makes our Eaxth stand motionless in the Centre. The Heavens, he tells us, are Ten in number.
The successive generations of men stand as it were on a thin earth-rind, with the Heavenly Stars above them, and the " Dark Valley" vaOe buia of HeU beneath. And the hollow " Realm of Sorrow" converges beneath Inf. Lost, tL He is planted at the bottom of Hell, fixed in eternal Darkness and eternal Ice Inf. And Dante, not without significance, ends each of the three great diyisions of his Poem with the word Stelle or " Stars :" a Blessed Spirit from above, sent by Divine Mercy, gives his Guide the power to rescue and conduct him Inf. The general form is that of an inverted cone, which has its base towards the " great dry land," and its apex at the centre of the Earth.
These Circles iare Nine in number, with various subdivisions in the lowest three of them ; all of which are folly described in their proper places. Wasps and hornets sting them forever, and make them hurry round the brim of Hell, pursuing an aimless-giddy flag. Crowds of guilty souls are seen assembling, in rapid succession, upon its shore, and Charon is ferrying them over. This scene, as described by Dante, Michdaugelo has endeavoured to represent in the Cappella Sistina at Borne. Virgil delicately rouses his at- tention, as they enter : " Thou askest not what spirits are these thou seest?
The great ancient Poets come forth to meet them, and receive Dante as one of their number. On descending to the Second Circle, Dante finds Minos the Infernal Judge stationed at its entrance, for the reason given in the Argument to canto v. This circle is the place of Francesca. Canto vi. Plutus is found on the brink of the next or Fourth Circle, wherein the Avaricious and the Prodigal have their punishment.
The tragedies of Francesca and Ugolino, as I have noted in the Argu- ment to canto xxxiiL, probably occurred both in the same year; and no doubt produced a deep impression on the young Poet. Canto vii. In its putrid mud, the Wrathful, the Sullen-sour or Gloomy- sluggish, and the Vainglorious, haye their appropriate pu- nishment.

The Sixth Circle is the first that lies within the City, and seems to be on a level with the fifth. The Five circles, through which the Poets have now passed, constitute the Upper Hell viii. In the Sixth Circle, the Arch-heretics with their fol- lowers, who deny the immortality of the soul, "have their cemetery. This Sixth Circle is as it were a connecting link see note, p. The Poets, on entering the City, turn to the right ix. Perhaps they have taken a like section or ''arc" vii. The descent to the Seventh Circle is made on precipi- tous shattered rocks ; to the Eighth, by means of Geryon ; and to the Ninth, by help of Antaeus.
The Arguments and Notes, which relate to these circles, and to their sub- divisions, will make them plain to all attentive readers; and for idle readers this book is quite unsuitable. In conclusion I may remark, that the great leading ideas of this Hell of Dante are not borrowed ideas ; but are the result of all that he had learnt, and seen, and known.
Visions of the future world had indeed been common amongst Heathens and Christians before, and were still common in his own time, as we know from many sources ; but those visions are generally of the most inco- herent, dim, and fragmentary description, and could sug- gest little or nothing, except tbat the minds of serious men had long been exercised with such things. Dante was fitmiliar with all the materials of the Middle Ages, and also with the worth and wisdom of the Ancients whom he sees, face to face, in that Limbo of his ; and he openly, nay purposely, takes every document within hb reach.
He has got infinitely beyond all the wretched factions of Guelphs and Ghibellines of his time ; and seen the very roots of their sin and misery. Dante finds himself astray in a dark Wood, where he spends a night of great miseiy. He says that death is hardly more hitter, than it is to recall what he suffered there ; but that he will tell the fearful things he saw, in order that he may also tell how he found guidance, and first began to discern the real causes of all misery.
He comes to a Hill ; and seeing its summit already bright with the rays of the Sun, he begins to ascend it The way to it looks quite deserted. He is met by a beautiful Leopard, which keeps distracting his atten- tion from the Hill, and makes him turn back several times. He says a time will come when a swift and strong Greyhound shall clear the earth of her, and chase her into HelL And he offers to conduct Dante by another road ; to shew him the eternal roots of misery and of joy, and leave him with a higher guide that will lead him up to Heaven. But to treat of the good that I there found, I will relate the other things that I discerned.

And as he, who with panting breath has escaped froin the deep sea to the shore, turns to the dan- gerous water and gazes; so my mind, which still was fleeing, turned back to see the pass that no one ever left alive. After I had rested my wearied body, I took the way again along the desert strand, so that the firm foot always was the lower.

Miserere di me, gridai a lui, Qual che ta sie, od ombra, od uomo certo. Virgil "lived," in Dante's sense, or applied himself to his great work as a poet, under Au- gustus. A Poet I was ; and sang of the jnstf son of An- chisea, who came from Troy after proud Hium was burnt. Thou art my master and my author. Or se' tu quel Virgilio, e quella fonte, Cbe spande di parlar si largo fimne? L , 6. And from this is derived the word Authority.
See the beast for which I turned back. Vedi la bestia, per cui io mi volsi : Aiatami da lei, famoso saggio, Gh' ella mi fa tremar le vene e i polsi. A te convien tenere altro viaggio, Rispose, poi che lagrimar mi vide, Se Yuoi campar d' esto loco selvaggio : Ghd questa bestia, per la qual tu gride, Non lascia altroi passar per la sua via. Ma tanto lo impedisce, che Y accide : E ha natura s malvagia e ria, Che mai non empie la bramosa yoglia, E dopo il paste ha piil fame che pria. Molti son gU animah, a cui s' ammoglia. In canto xix.

One looks in vain for reasonable proofs of many things that Troya asserts in his high-sounding book : whole Tolumes on such a subject are of necessity some- what empty.

The passage will remain obscure, as it was even to Dante's contemporaries ; but will sufficiently indicate to us the mixture of zeal and longing for some deliverer, that must have been in his mind when he wrote it The old commentator, who knew Dante personally, thinks Sua nazhn sard tra feltro e feltro " his birth shall be between felt and felt," literally , imports that ' this promised deliverer "shall be bom of a humble race, as felt is a humble and mean cloth" see Comento delP Oltimo, vol.

End of the first day. Brief invocation. Dante is discouraged at the outset, when he begins seriously to reflect upon what he has under- taken. On hearing this, Dante immediately casts off all pusillanimity, and at once accepts the Freedom and the Mission that are given him. Muses, O high Genius, now help me! O Memory, that hast inscribed what I saw, here will be shewn thy nobleness. Muse, o alto ingegno, or m' aiatate : O mente, che scriyesti ci6 eh' io yidi.

It has already miserably failed before the Lion and the Wolf. For in the empyreal heaven, he was chosen to be the father of generous Rome, and of her Empire. By this journey, for which thou honourest him, he learned things that were the causes of his victory, Ta did, che di Silvio lo parente, Corrattibile ancora, ad immortale Secolo and6, e fu sensibilmente.

Now go, and with thy ornate speech, and with what is necessary for his escape, help him so, that I may be consoled thereby. I am Beatrice who send thee. I come from a place where I desire to return. Love moved me, that makes me speak. When I shall be before my Lord, I oft will praise thee to him.

Inscription over the Gate of Hell, and the impression it produces upon Dante. Yirgil takes him by the hand, and leads him in. The dismal sounds make him burst into tears. His head is quite bewil- dered. These are the unhappy people, who never were alive — never awakened to take any part either in good or evil, to care for any thing but themselves. After passing through the crowd of them, the Poets come to a great River, which flows round the brim of Hell ; and then descends to form the other rivers, the marshes, and the ice that we shall meet with.
It is the river Acheron ; and on its Shore all that die under the wrath of God assemble firom every country to be ferried over by the demon Charon. He makes them enter his boat by glaring on them with his burning eyes. Having seen these, and being refused a passage by Charon, Dante is suddenly stunned by a violent trembling of the ground, accompanied with wind and lightning, and falls down in a state of insensibility. Through me is the way into the doleful city; through me the way into the eternal pain ; through me the way among the people lost.
Justice moved my High Maker : Divine Power made me. Wisdom Supreme, and Primal Love. Leave all hope, ye that enter. These words, of colour obscure, saw I written above a gate. Whereat I : " Master, their meaning to me is hard. Dinanzi a me non far cose create, Se non eterne, ed io eterno duro : LaBdate ogni speranza, voi ch' entrate. Queste parole di colore oscuro Vid' io scritte al sommo d' una porta ; Per ch' io : Maestro, il senso lor m' h duro. Remark how Dante, un- der his old phraseology here and elsewhere, always feels that no in- finite Love, or Wisdom, or Power, are possible without Justice.
To him the great Trinity is not a mere hearsay, but a living reality. The Hell of Dante comes upon him as a very sad and painfiU thing withal. See v. We are come to the place where I told thee thou shouldst see the wretched people, who haye lost the good of the intellect. Here sighs, plaints, and deep wailings resounded through the starless air : it made me weep at first Strange tongues, horrible outcries, words of pain, tones of anger, voices deep and hoarse, and sound of hands amongst them, made a tumult, which turns itself Ed egli a me, come persona accorta : Qui si convien lasciare ogni sospetto ; Ogni viltk conyien che qui sia morta.
Con lieto volto, ond' io mi confortai, 20 Mi mise dentro alle segrete cose. Qnivi Bospiri, pianti, e alti guai Risonayan per V aer senza atelle, Per eh' io al cominciar ne lagrimai. Diverse lingue, orribili fayelle, Parole di dolore, accenti d' ira, 25 Yoci alte e fioche, e suon di man con elle, They are mingled with that abject choir of angels, who were not rebellious, nor were faithful to God; but were for themselves. Come la rena quando il turbo spira.
Ed egli a me : Questo misero mode Tengon Y anime triste di coloro, 35 Che visser senza infamia e senza lodo. Some editions read orror horror in line 31, instead of error, ' Lit : " in order to be not less beautiful. These have no hope of death ; and their blind life is so mean, that they are envious of every other lot. Report of them the world permits not to exist. Mercy and Judgment disdains them. Let us not speak of them ; but look, and pass. Rispose : Dicerolti molto breve. Ed io, che rigiiardai, vidi mi' insegna, Che girando correva tanto ratta, Che d' ogni posa mi pareva indegna : E dietro le venia s lunga tratta 55 Di gente, eh' io non averei creduto, Che morte tanta n' avesse disfatta.
Dicerolti, tel dird : LaL tUcere. Those unfortunate, who never were alive, were naked, and sorely goaded by wasps and hornets that were there : these made their feces stream with blood, which mixed with tears was gathered at their feet by loath- some worms. Incontanente mtesi, e certo fui, Che quest' era la setta del cattivi, A Die spiacenti ed a' nemici sui.

He had lived as a monk to the age of seventy-two, and was suddenly elected at Perugia, after the papal chair had been kept vacant for more than two years by the wild contests of the cardinals.
He died soon after his resignation, and was canonised in , eight years be- fore Dante's death. The line often quoted Inferno, canto xzviL proves nothing, except that Dante knew about Celestine — a thing that needed no proofl Each com- mentator may continue to select for Dante the person most pro- minent in his own imagination.
And lo! Hope not ever to see Heaven. I come to lead you to Da fastidiosi vermi era ricolto. Com' io discemo per lo fioco lume.

Ed ecco verso noi venir per nave Un vecchio bianco per antico pelo, Gridando : Guai a voi, anime prave! Thus it is wiUed there,' where what is willed can be done : and ask no more.
But those spirits, who were forewom and naked, changed colour and chattered with their teeth, soon as they heard the Nelle tenebre eteme, in caldo e in gelo. E tu che sei cosU, anima viva, Partiti da cotesti, che son morti. Ma poi cb' ei vide, eh' io noD mi partiva, 90 Difise : Per altre vie, per altri porti Verrai a piaggia, non qui, per passare : Pid lieve legno convien che ti porti.
E il Duca a lui : Caron, non ti crucciare : Vuolsi cos! Quinci fur quete le lanose gote Al nocchier della livida palude, Che intomo agli occhi avea di fiamme rote. SS bitter words. As the leaves of autumn fall off one after the other, till the branch sees all its spoils upon the ground; so one by one the evil seed of Adam cast themselves from that shore at signals, as the bird at its call.
Thus they depart on the brown water; and ere they have landed on the other shore, a fresh crowd collects on this. Bestemmiavano Iddio e i lor parenti, L' umana specie, il luogo, il tempo, e il seme Di lor semenza e di lor nascimeDti. Forte piaDgendo, alia riva malvagia, Che attende dascun uom, che Dio non teme. Caron dimonio, con oechi di bragia Loro accennando, tutte le raccoglie ; Batte col remo qualunque s' adagia. Gome d' autunno si levan le foglie L' una appresso dell' altra, iofin che il ramo Vede alia terra tutte le sue spoglie ; Similemente il mal seme d' Adamo : Gittansi di quel lito ad una ad una, Per cenni, come augel per suo richiamo.
CAXTO lu. And they are prompt to pass the river, for Divine Justice spurs them so, that fear is changed into desire. By tMs way no good spirit ever passes ; and hence, if Charon complains of thee, thou easily mayest know the import of his words. The tearful ground gave out wind, and flashed with a crimson light, which conquered all my senses : and I fell, like one who is seized with sleep. Finite questo, la buia campagna Trem6 si forte, che dello spayento La mente di sudore ancor mi bagna. Dante is roused by a heavy thunder, and finds himself on the brink of the Abyss.
Not in his own strength has he crossed the dismal river. Virgil conducts him into Limbo, which is the First Circle of Hell, and contains the spirits of those who lived without Baptism or Christiaiiity. The only pain they suffer is, that they live in the desire and without the hope of seeing God. Their sighs cause the eternal air to tremble, and there is no other audible lamentation amongst them. Homer and the other Poets quit them ; and they go on to a place of total darkness. And, having risen erect, I moved my rested eyes around, and looked stedfastly to know the place in which I was.
True is it, that I found myself upon the brink of the dolorous Valley of the Abyss, which gathers thunder of endless wailings. Vero h, che in su la proda mi trovai Delia valle d' abisso dolorosa, Cbe tuono accoglie d' infiniti guai. Oscura, profonda era, e nebulosa, 10 Tanto che, per ficear lo viso al fondo, Io non yi discernea yenma cosa. Or discendiam quaggid nel cieco mondo, Incominci6 il Poeta tutto smorto : Io Bar6 primo, e tu sarai secondo. ITO IT. Let us go; for the length of way impels us. And this arose from the sadness, without torment, of the crowds that were many and great, both of children, and of women and men.
CAirio it. The good Master to me : " Thou aakest not what spirits are these thou seest? And though they have merit, it suffices not ; for they had not Baptism, which is the portal of the Faith that thou believest. And seeing they were before Christianity, they worshipped not God aright. And of these am I myself. Per tai difetti, e non per altro rio, 40 Semo perdati, e sol di tanto offesi, Che senza speme vivemo in disio.

They had an aspect neither sad nor joyful.

Lott, T. The crested cock, whose cla- rion sounds The silent hours. We came to the foot of a Noble Castle, seven times circled with lofty Walls, defended round by a fair Rivulet. Through seven gates I entered with those sages. We reached a meadow of fresh verdure. On it were people with eyes slow and grave, of great authority in their appearance.
Cost n' andammo infino alia lumiera Parlando cose, cbe il tacere h bello, SI com' era il parlar colk dov' era. Qaesto passammo come terra dura ; Per sette porte intrai cod quest! The stream is very beautiful ; and hinders the name- less spirits of Limbo from enter- ing. But the Poets find it small and shallow ; and pass on, as if it were not there, to examine what is contained on the green Heights of the interior. We retired to one of the sides ; into a place open, luminous, and high, so that they could all be seen.
I saw Camilla and Penthesilea. On the other hand I saw thp Latian king, sitting with Lavinia his daughter. Traemmod cosl dall' un de' canti In luogo apertOy luminoso, ed alto, Si che yeder si potean tutti quanti. Mi fur mostrati gli spiriti magni, Che di yederti in me stesso m' esalto.

She is with her own descendants; amongst whom Dante reckons Ciesar, the Head of his ideal Monarchy. All regard him ; all do him honour.

The company of six diminishes to two. In all other parts of Limbo, the air trembles v. It contains the souls of Car- nal sinners ; and their punishment consists in heing driven ahout incessantly, in total darkness, by fierce winds. First amongst them comes Semiramis, the Babylonian queen. Dido, Cleopatra, Helena, Achilles, Paris, and a great multitude of others, pass in succession. Dante is overcome and bewildered with pity at the sight of them, when his attention is suddenly attracted to two Spirits that keep together, and seem strangely light upon the wind.
He is unable to speak for some time, after finding that it is Francesca of Rimini, with her lover Paolo ; and fidls to the ground, as if dead, when he has heard their painful story. Francesca was the daughter of Guido Vecchio da Polenta, lord of Ravenna, and was given in marriage to Gianciotto, or Giovanni Sciancato John the lame, or hipshot , eldest son of Malatesta Vecchio, lord or tyrant of RiminL Paolo, her lover, was a younger son of Malatesta.
They were surprised and slain together by the husband, about the year ; and buried in the same grave. Guido Novello, the true and generous friend, with whom Dante resided at Ravenna, was the son of Francesca's brother, Ostagio da Polenta. I say, that when the ill-bom spirit comes before him, it confesses all; and that sin-discerner sees what place in hell is for it, and with his tail makes as many circles round himself as the degrees' he will have it to descend.
Ringhia from Lat ringere. I Each successive circle is smaller as we descend. Thus it is willed there where what is willed can be done: and ask no more. Perhaps also with allusion to : " Wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction. The hellish storm, which never rests, leads the spirits with its sweep ; whirling, and smiting it vexes them. When they arrive before the ruin,' there the shrieks, the meanings, and the lamenta- tion ; there they blaspheme the divine power. I learnt that to such torment were doomed the carnal sinners, who subject reason to lust.
Quando giungon dayanti alia mina, Quiyi le strida, D compianto e il lamento ; 35 Bestemmian quivi la virtii diyina.

See in canto L 60, the want of sunlight only; and in canto iii. In Hell itself there is total dark- ness and blindness. No hope ever comforts them, not of rest but even of less pain. Whereat I said : " Master, who are those people, whom the black air thus lashes?
