"E ‘l duca a lui: ‘Caron, non ti crucciare:
vuolsi così colà dove si puote
ciò che si vuole, e più non dimandare.”

Inf. III, lines 94-96


The Divine Comedy is a work of art composed by almost 15000 lines, every single one is hendecasyllabic and it is completly composed by tercets. Reading it in another language must be atrocious. It loses everythig. And what about all those allegoris and stuff? 
If I had not been able to speek italian, I would have learned it just to read the Comedy, I swear. 
The fact that not everybody can read it in the original language is a pity… but Dante still remain a genius and The Divine Comedy a fucking amazing work of art.

I’m the nicest rude person you’ll ever meet, I don’t give a fuck about anything but at the same time I care about a lot, I hate people but I develop crushes easily, I hate myself but at the same time I’m completely fabulous.
