Canto 1. Shore (Dec. 2016)
In canto one of the original Purgatorio, the pilgrim
emerges from the depths of hell just before dawn
and sees the isle of Purgatory rising up before him.
Turning to his right he catches sight of four stars,
and then he encounters the statesman Cato of Utica
who recommends a cleansing before proceeding.
