|Chapter 7 of my webcomic, The Heroes' Guild. If ya like PMD, you should give T.H.G. a read.|
I read Dante’s Inferno per AP English Class reading and I decided to write a review about since my overall opinion of the book seems to be in very stark contrast to everyone else’s view and I’ve never seen my point of view being expressed by any other person.
So, Dante’s Inferno is about Dante the Poet and his journey through the circles of Hell to find his lover, Beatrice. He is led by a great once-alive-now-dead poet named Virgil. For each sin, there is a cruel punishment that every soul that committed that sin must face for all eternity from being torn to bits by Cerberus or burned flesh from boiling blood. And what did I think of this tale of woes, human faults, and graphic ordeals?
It was absolutely adorable.
You think I am kidding? I’m not. It’s cute! Dante is like Jack Skellington going “What’s this? What’s this?” and Virgil is just trying to drag him along, hand to forehead, going “This is what happens when you bring a complete noob to Hell.” All the spirits that talk to Dante are there trying to gain some sympathy for their plight like it will make any difference and Dante is eating it up! Are we sure Dante was a wise poet on earth because here he’s portrayed like a curious little child that just falls for everything and wants so much for his teacher, Virgil, to give him a gold star. Then, there’s Virgil that makes a complete mockery of all the monsters of Hell. Look, I know what this book is trying to be. It’s trying to highlight the faults of humans, especially what Dante thinks are human’s greatest faults. But, I just see a perfect parody here. I’m seeing comedic potential everywhere I turn in this tale. I can really see a Tom and Jerry bit going on with Virgil and the beasts, Dante doing something adorable and everyone reacting to it. Has anyone else thought of this? I know that, despite being called The Divine Comedy, it’s not supposed to be funny. For all those that may be raging at my nonchalance regarding this piece of literature, acknowledge this: if everyone in the world was stone-cold serious, we never would have had Looney Toons. Sometimes it takes a true poet to see the divine comedy in The Divine Comedy.
Congratulations, you found your way to my page. Now, sit down. I'm going to talk about myself and you're gonna listen.|
I'm Meemie. I am 18 years old and I make a mean batch of brownies.
I create a webcomic called The Heroes Guild about pokemon. T.H.G. is my labor of love and my main project.
Poking Fun at Ponies is what I do when I don't feel like working on T.H.G. and need a break from it. It's essentially me making fun of brony community stars in the form of art.
Ask the Guild is a side project from T.H.G. You ask a question and I try to answer it in the best or most ridiculous way possible.
