Sin In Dante's Inferno

Decent Essays
I think that Dante wrote the Inferno to showcase the evils that many people may be unaware of. In the aspect of sin we do not view all of them as horrible as what Dante describes the punishments to be. In the case of Gluttony many people today just view it as obesity, in Dante’s time it was viewed as a sin. Today’s society is completely opposite with what was acceptable in his time. Today we have grown use to the waste of food or the misers of society as they hold their money close to themselves. I think that he wrote the Inferno because it gave people the idea of what is truly sin for the people of his time and even to extend further to our time, so they can realize what they can change in their life to help better themselves as individuals.
