Paradiso: The Divine Comedy, Book 3
Dante Alighieri
Poetry
Aug 1, 2018
As the Comedy ascends to a heaven of light, Dante completes the grand imaginative arc he began in the dark wood, having composed out of eschatological speculations an epic as thrilling as those of Homer, as filled with human sensibility as Virgil’s—one in which all the deadly sins, and all the longed-for virtues, are given speaking roles.

The Divine Comedy is one of those series that is part of the foundation of cultural/intellectual literacy..Paradise was my favorite of the three books listed.
