The Seventh Circle: Poems from the Abyss
by Salvatore Buttaci
July 16, 2012
Throughout history evil men have enslaved nations in order to satisfy their hunger for power. Dante in his Inferno, (Canto XII), assigns a seventh circle, a coast of blood where these murdering tyrants boil for their crimes." These poems from the abyss speak, not only of those madmen who burn there, but also those victims who succumbed to their atrocities. These poems of the Holocaust, Stalin’s Red Reign, the Twin Towers Bombing remind us all that history does in fact repeat itself; therefore, it remains our responsibility to never forget these historical cataclysms, to study the causes, and to work as united nations to avoid them in the future.
