Focus on Dante and discuss the journey of the Commedia (Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso).
Dante makes clear that the journey of the Commedia (Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso) entails the education of the soul. In Cantos 5 and 15, we see Dante the pilgrim (the character, as opposed to the author) demonstrating great compassion for Paolo and Francesca and Brunetto Latini. Is this a sign of his spiritual growth, or is it an indication of his naïveté? Take a position on this question in your thesis, and use quotations from Dante to justify your position in your answer.
