Dante's Divine Comedy, Inferno Canto I

Dante's Divine Comedy - Inferno Canto I These are images depicting the beginning of Dante's journey. With your knowledge of the 1st Canto of the Inferno, put them in chronological order and writing the verse/stanza that goes along with it, either in Italian or English. Name the number of the slide 1-12 and next to it write the corrisponding order. What things foreshadow the three divisions of Hell - incontinence, violence, and fraud? We do not meet Beatrice in hell, but there is mention of her, place that image in the appropriate order. Some slides have specific instructions, make sure you respond to those instructions as well.

The videos are for your pleasure.
