Greetings instructors,

Today I have a question, that is, perhaps a little foolish,
but I have always genuinely wondered in regards to
Dante's: Divina Commedia, where the fun part comes in?

Sincere Regards

Firstly, what are your expectations regarding this poem? Are you looking for entertainment, or for wisdom to educate your consciousness?

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami

The latter. Just trying to understand why it was titled the divine comedy.
The only thing that I've been able to come up with, looking at the whole,
would be that, despite all the sufferings that exists in hell, it basically tries
to explain that even hell is holy, by its process of purification.
But is that really what a comedy is?

Given the many nightmares that exists, with some being even worse than
nightmares, I guess I have a really hard time seeing the whole. Not trying
to get hung up on titles, I just seek to understand its reasoning.
