Peut-on encore aujourd'hui aimer Francesca, être troublé par Ugolino, trembler aux tourments des damnés de l. a. Comédie? L'Enfer de Dante, poétique et médiéval, n'a-t-il pas pâli irréparablement auprès des Enfers tout proches, et actifs, que notre siècle n'a pas encore fini, semble-t-il, de susciter?

En fait, l'imagination créatrice de Dante est si puissante, et si précise, qu'elle semble décrire par avance, parfois, l'inimaginable horreur moderne. Le gigantesque entonnoir de l'Enfer, qui se creuse jusqu'au centre de los angeles terre, est dépeint comme le réceptacle de tout le mal de l'univers, comme une sorte de sac où viennent s'engouffrer tous les noyaux, tous les atomes de mal épars sur l. a. planète. Mais nous lisons aussi autre selected dans L'Enfer, plus que le catalogue effrayant des péchés et des châtiments possibles, plus que l'archétype du roman noir, il correspond pour nous au départ de l'exploration, à l. a. première étape du grand roman initiatique d'une autre civilisation qui est los angeles racine de l. a. nôtre.

How," he said, "has it come to this That not even the criminal is sure of his life And not even he, who is prepared to do anything Has a measure of success? Everyone knows that those are lost Who are concerned for their human dignity. But those who discard it? Shall it be said: he who escaped the depths Falls on the heights? At night the righteous start from their sleep bathed in sweat The softest footstep fills them with alarm Their good conscience pursues them even in their sleep And now I hear: the criminal, too Can no longer sleep peacefully?

K. told the following story about some old-established fishermen: "On the south coast of Iceland there are fishermen who, by means of fixed buoys, have divided the ocean there into individual parcels and shared them out among themselves. They are more fiercely devoted to these fields of water than to their property. They feel attached to them, would never give them up, even if no more fish were to be found in them, and they scorn the inhabitants of the harbor towns to whom they sell their catch, since these townspeople appear to them a superficial race, alienated from nature.
