Excerpt from The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri

Midway upon the journey of our life fl I found myself within a forest dark, U M n, For the straightforward pathway had been lost. Ah me How hard a thing it is to say I What was this forest savage, rough, and stern, N U t? A l.. V Which in the very thought renews the fear. So bitter is it, death is little more; But of the good to treat, which there I found, Speak will I of the other things I saw there. I cannot well repeat how there I entered, 50 full was I of slumber at the moment In which I had abandoned the true way. But after I had reached a mountain's foot, At that point where the valley terminated, Which had with consternation pierced my heart, Upward I looked, and I beheld its shoulders, Vested already With that planet's rays Which leadeth others right by every road. Then was the fear a little quieted That in my heart's lake had endured throughout The night, which I had passed so piteously. And even as he, who, with distressful breath, Forth issued from the sea upon the shore, Turns to the water perilous and gazes So did my soul, that still was fleeing onward, Turn itself back to re-behold the pass Which never yet a livmg person left. After my weary body I had rested, The way resumed I on the desert slope, So that the firm foot ever was the lower.
