Canto 25:55. Wm Blake’s painting in the background shows Buoso de’ Donati being attacked by the serpent Francesco Guerico de’ Cavalcanti who will be transformed into a man—after having been transformed into a serpent. Don’t we all change and change—sometimes more devilish sometimes more angelic? This is the fourth in the series. [Rather than reproducing Dante’s text, I suggest that you read James Finn Cotter’s translation of canto 25: http://www.italianstudies.org/comedy/Inferno25.htm .]
