Harriet Moore and Dante's Divine Comedy
  I see my work with Dante's Divine Comedy as a universalized expression of a personal exsperience. The INFERNO is the descent into despair, total withdrawal, a confrontation with the symbolic figures of the unconscious. These are the darkly grotesque horrors of Dante's Hell. The arduous ascent through the PURGATORIO is the cleansing and purifying of the the soul, the healing process. The PARADISO, the sublime soaring towards the presence of God, is the revelation of one's full humanity, a rebirth and return to the world.
