"THE ENLIGHTENED DANTE", woodcut # 67 by Salvador Dalí, for stanza # 33. A surrealistic angel commands this picture, which concludes the Purgatorio. The artist depicts the enlightenment by using the image of both a window and a passageway. The angel is facing the poet (just like the viewer). The poet walks toward us. We see him through the angel, whose intensive, heavenly blue fills most of the rest of the picture. For our article, see Dante and Beatrice in the Earthly Paradise ...
