Story
The Dante Collection, for men, charts the journey of the young poet through the depths of the Inferno, and up the mountain of Purgatory. He is a lost traveller, at times unsure of the way. There are other times he experiences flickers of courage, as he meets demons from his past, beasts too wild to recount, and old friends on the shores.

Questi parea che contra me venesse
con la test'alta e con rabbiosa fame,
si che parea che l'aere ne temesse

Inferno, canto i, lines 46-49

In the selva oscura - dark wood- Dante is confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air is trembling in fear of the wild beast. This encounter comes close to forcing Dante to turn away from the perilous journey. It is at this point that Virgil, his guide, appears to offer him counsel and companionship.
