A Key to the Time Allusions in the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri free pdf Excerpt from A Key to the Time Allusions in the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri Desiring to know the duration of the action of the "Divina Commedia," I took one of the best known editions and there I found that it is ten days. In order to be quite sure I consulted a second edition which informed me that it is six days. A third one did not agree with either of the others. Rather surprised, because I am deeply convinced that a great poem is not a collection of riddles, I made up my mind to work out the question for myself Thinking that the first condition of success was to form a clear mental picture of the astronomical data constantly referred to by Dante, I did so, and after the necessary simplifications, it finally took the shape of the Dial accompanying this little work. With its help all the time-references seem to me to be clear, perfectly coherent and easily followed. As no diagram can represent things exactly as they are, the reader will see in my note to Purgatorio, Canto iv. lines 61-84, how much my Dial conforms to reality and to what extent it departs from it. This small book contains the Italian text of the time-references, Longfellow's English translation of them, their explanation and the Dial.
