  • Epigraph:
    Within the mount a great old man erect
    Looks out to Rome as if it were his glass;
    His shoulders Damietta's coast reject.
    A head shapen of perfect gold he has;
    Of pure silver his limbs are, and his breast:
    Thence down he is all of iron, proved the best,
    Except that the right foot is baked of clay,
    And on this, more than the other, doth he rest.

    -Dante, Inferno (trans. Binyon)
  • This poem is in three numbered parts.
