Write a poem using the information below
As my frail frame rises from the ground, the autumn sky peeking through the hues of the yellow, orange, red and brown leaves from the tree we took shelter under last night. Zamunda is beautiful but I can’t help but feel down, I look to the sky and say aloud Davina will get hers and I will get Jafar and my stout body back. I see a cloud of dust zoom by, I knew immediately who it was, that fucking Swift, his energetic, hyper ass was getting on my last nerve – “stop crying over that mangy mut and get ya puny ass up and let’s storm the tower! You wanna be little forever and alone? No so move ya ass! We started ascending up the side of the tower to a window where the professor could be heard. Davina cracking her whip yelling out poets and he had to recite each poem or get snapped by the whip. As we got closer to the window on the tower Swift said hold this as I reached for the golden quill as swift peeked into the window but knew he needed me and we must move quickly he used his power to grab me and within a blink of an eye we were face to face with the evil one Princess Davina! She started spewing poems left and right and almost had swift and I under her spell when swift darted away and within seconds he returned, he had the rest of group 4 with him! Jungle red leaped into action clawing at the twine tied around the professors wrist and ankles with her razor sharp claws, Damiana gravitated towards Davina, the joy Davina had from torturing the professor made her susceptible to Damiana’s power to absorb the joy and paralyze her, making her the host until we had the professor and she discarded Davina!

Dante Alighieri played a critical role in the literature world through his poem Divine Comedy that was written in the 14th century. The poem contains Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. The Inferno is a description of the nine circles of torment that are found on the earth. It depicts the realms of the people that have gone against the spiritual values and who, instead, have chosen bestial appetite, violence, or fraud and malice. The nine circles of hell are limbo, lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. Others are heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Dante’s Inferno in the perspective of its portrayal of God’s image and the justification of hell.
In this epic poem, God is portrayed as a super being guilty of multiple weaknesses including being egotistic, unjust, and hypocritical. Dante, in this poem, depicts God as being more human than divine by challenging God’s omnipotence. Additionally, the manner in which Dante describes Hell is in full contradiction to the morals of God as written in the Bible. When god arranges Hell to flatter Himself, He commits egotism, a sin that is common among human beings (Cheney, 2016). The weakness is depicted in Limbo and on the Gate of Hell where, for instance, God sends those who do not worship Him to Hell. This implies that failure to worship Him is a sin.
God is also depicted as lacking justice in His actions thus removing the godly image. The injustice is portrayed by the manner in which the sodomites and opportunists are treated. The opportunists are subjected to banner chasing in their lives after death followed by being stung by insects and maggots. They are known to having done neither good nor bad during their lifetimes and, therefore, justice could have demanded that they be granted a neutral punishment having lived a neutral life. The sodomites are also punished unfairly by God when Brunetto Lattini is condemned to hell despite being a good leader (Babor, T. F., McGovern, T., & Robaina, K. (2017). While he commited sodomy, God chooses to ignore all the other good deeds that Brunetto did.
Finally, God is also portrayed as being hypocritical in His actions, a sin that further diminishes His godliness and makes Him more human. A case in point is when God condemns the sin of egotism and goes ahead to commit it repeatedly. Proverbs 29:23 states that “arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.” When Slattery condemns Dante’s human state as being weak, doubtful, and limited, he is proving God’s hypocrisy because He is also human (Verdicchio, 2015). The actions of God in Hell as portrayed by Dante are inconsistent with the Biblical literature. Both Dante and God are prone to making mistakes, something common among human beings thus making God more human.
To wrap it up, Dante portrays God is more human since He commits the same sins that humans commit: egotism, hypocrisy, and injustice. Hell is justified as being a destination for victims of the mistakes committed by God. The Hell is presented as being a totally different place as compared to what is written about it in the Bible. As a result, reading through the text gives an image of God who is prone to the very mistakes common to humans thus ripping Him off His lofty status of divine and, instead, making Him a mere human. Whether or not Dante did it intentionally is subject to debate but one thing is clear in the poem: the misconstrued notion of God is revealed to future generations.
