Sample text

More importantly, the presence of Ulysses serves to characterize the desire of the top three terraces as Ulyssean, to metaphorize avarice, gluttony, and lust, so that we see these sins in the light of their root cause: excessive desire, the pursuing of objects with troppo di vigore. As validation of the Ulyssean thrust here conferred upon the final three terraces, we note the presence of a tree upon the terrace of gluttony whose parent is none other than the tree that Ulysses desired—metaphorically—to eat, the tree from which Adam and Eve did indeed eat: “Trapassate oltre sanza farvi presso: / legno è più sù che fu morso da Eva, / e questa pianta si levò da esso” (“Pass onward without drawing near; further up is a tree that was bitten by Eve, and this plant was taken from that one” [Purg.

8). ” [Purg. 52–54]). ” “Beatitudine,” as he calls it in the libello, is spiritual autonomy, the ability to relinquish even the best and most beautiful of earthly things—such as Beatrice’s greeting, Casella’s song, Manfredi’s beautiful aspect. Not the cessation of desire, but the mastery of an infallible desire, is the goal; and indeed the pilgrim enters the earthly paradise full of a questing desire (“Vago già di cercar dentro e dintorno” [“Desirous already to search inside and about” (Purg. 1)]) that cannot go wrong.

Lo sommo desiderio di ciascuna cosa, e prima da la natura dato, è lo ritornare a lo suo principio. E però che Dio è principio de le nostre anime e fattore di quelle simili a sé (sì come è scritto: “Facciamo l’uomo ad imagine e similitudine nostra”), essa anima massimamente desidera di tornare a quello. E sì come peregrino che va per una via per la quale mai non fue, che ogni casa che da lungi vede crede che sia l’albergo, e non trovando ciò essere, dirizza la credenza a l’altra, e così di casa in casa, tanto che a l’albergo viene; così l’anima nostra, incontanente che nel nuovo e mai non fatto cammino di questa vita entra, dirizza li occhi al termine del suo sommo bene, e però, qualunque cosa vede che paia in sé avere alcuno bene, crede che sia esso.
