Hell, in the Poem “The Inferno” by Dante

Analyze Hell as presented in the poem “The Inferno” by Dante.

Does the Inferno suggest that people suffer in Hell because they are victims of cruel fate, or does it suggest that they suffer in Hell because they made poor choices? What does the Inferno show about Dante’s point of view on good and evil? In his imagination, are the two forces evenly matched, or is one side stronger?
