INFERNO: Canto 15 - The Uncivil Servants


THE UNCIVIL SERVANTS In this canto, Dante meets the man who taught him how to speak and write-- a politician and fellow exile who has one last lesson for the pilgrim. We'll also learn about the group of sinners punished in this sub-circle-- those who were violent against nature and order.
