RITE OF EXILE: Part III Silent Scent (or On Virtue)

I asked: “O Master, what so grievous is

To these, that make them lament so sore?”

He answered: “I will tell thee very briefly.

 

These have no longer any hope of death;

And this blind life of theirs is so debased,

They envious are of every other fate.”

- Dante Alighieri, Inferno, Canto III

 

 

A family stranded on the shores of inferno recollect their memories of a lost innocence. Under the prying eyes of the Fates two brothers, father and son, mother and daughter seek their lost virtues.

Nine acts see them tumble down a vertiginous circus of the abyss.
