Vanni Fucci

He was a thief who lived in Pistoia , as his name "di Pistoia" meaning "of Pistoia" indicates; when he died, he was sent to the seventh bolgia round; in Italian, "ditch" or "pouch" of the eighth circle of Hell, where thieves are punished. In that bolgia his punishment was to be stung by a serpent, reduced to ashes, and then restored to his former shape for more torturing. Dante and Virgil meet him and ask him why he was there. He replied that he stole a treasure from the Church of St. James in his hometown; he had wrongly accused an innocent man, Vanni della Nona, with the crime, for which della Nona was executed.

Midway this way of life we're bound upon, I woke to find myself in a dark wood, Where the right road was wholly lost and gone. Canst thou be Virgil? Thou that fount of splendour Whence poured so wide a stream of lordly speech? And greater honour yet they [Homer, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, and Lucan] did me—yea, Into their fellowship they deigned invite And make me sixth among such minds as they. Nay, but I tell not all that I saw then; The long theme drives me hard, and everywhere The wondrous truth outstrips my staggering pen. So we stirred Our footsteps citywards, with hearts reposed, Safely protected by the heavenly word. So may thy soul these many years abide Housed in thy body, and the after-light Of fame shine long behind thee.

Dante’s Inferno

You can't do jump-scares in a book. There's no computerized special effects, or actors covered with gruesome makeup and KY jelly. You can always put a book down for a few days. And yet, the creepy prose of horror's greatest writers has the power to hold you trapped in a spell of terror that no film crew can match. This story has been mystifying readers for years
