Canto 22. Fruit (Feb. 2017)
Cantos 22-24 in the poem's Purgatorio describe the 6th terrace
of purgatory, where those who were gluttonous now reside.
Statius, having earned his release from the fifth terrace,
continues to accompany the pilgrms, so now it is three travelers.
Presently they encounter a tree laden with lush fruit and
hear a voice speaking of Romans who practiced temperance.
