April Stamm 17-Mar-08 Journal Virgil and Dante have come to a place where the souls are trapped in the ice with only their faces protruding from the ice. On these souls the tears that they cry freeze over to form crystal visors over their eyes. One of the souls locked in the ice of this third round of the ninth circle begs Dante to remove the ice covering his eyes so that he may cry for a while, and Dante, still feeling pity for the souls agrees to do so as long as he tells Dante his name. Dante begins to remove the ice but then the soul tells him that his name is Friar Albergio, a man who Dante knows was not dead. This confession shocks Dante and Friar Albergio continues by saying that he is not dead, rather his sin was so terrible that the moment he committed it his soul was ripped from his body, trapped here in hell and that a demon took his place on earth in his worldly body. Continuing Friar Albergio tells Dante of another person to whom this happened, yet Dante does not believe him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
