Peterson 1 Jesse Peterson ENGL 101 Classics of Western Lit Prof. Gibson 10/8/2009 Minos—Last Hope for Sinners As Dante pursues his trip into the underworld along side of his mentor, Virgil, he comes into contact with some very strange beasts. Some of these beasts are terrifying, and some are very cruel. His encounters with these beasts are very important as some of them resemble some key issues that everyday humans need to be aware of as they go through life. As I have read through many of these monsters and their positions held in Hell, I have come to learn that what they guard symbolizes many of the sins that simply wave at us as we commit them every day. Some of the sins aren’t committed every day, of course, but many of the littler sins, and even a few of the larger, more serious sins, are some that I could categorize as “easy sins,” or choices that we are faced with every day. The monster that I had decided to draw out was the character of Minos.
