The hardest course to get into at the college where I was a student long ago, was Dante's Inferno -pt.2. You had to have had a foundation knowledge of Italian back in High school, working up through various Italian courses and passing all of them. Finally you get to Dante's Inferno I which was conducted in Italian ONLY. Pass that and you can register for pt.II which is also in Italian ONLY. Fail ANY course and you can forget about II. The sequence of courses would take one's entire college levels. (Up to upper senior.).

I am not good at foreign languages and settled for English. I have 2 books of Dante's Divine Comedy and the Sayers translation is the most analytic.

It was because of the game I read the poem and LOVED IT. The game doesnt do the poem justice, but still, the game is very awesome in its own way.

And Virgil... he just kicks @$$

Yeah and they cannot comprehend that no one wants to play a game starring a wimpy poet going to hell. However a bad ass scythe wielding badass sounds more interesting. : D Course the rabid God of War fanboys are just as bad when pointing out flaws concerning the game.

You would think these guys would learn to play a game, like the EA's version of the poem, and find an easy way to pull the stick out of their tight asses.
