Canto 16. Rage (Jan. 2017)
Canto 16 continues canto 15's third terrace theme of rage
amid smoke and darkness reminiscent of the inferno.
One of the characters encountered here discusses free will
and the ability to emerge victorious by choosing wisely.
Dante also uses this canto to criticize the Church of his day
for being too temporal thereby contributing to man's suffering.
