Storyboard Text

  • Dante and Virgil enter the second circle of Hell, the circle of lust.
  • There is still danger for you.
  • This circle is much lower than the first circle symbolizing less freedom.Former king Minos is the guard of this circle.
  • Minos' grandson who was a cruel tyrant was responsible for teaching people to be sacrificed to the Minotaur.
  • Minos told Dante that he is in danger and isn't safe. He tells Dante that there are much worse levels of hell. Virgil told him to not listen to Minos.
  • There are large winds punishing the sinners of lust. This symbolizes their rage which overpowers their reason.
  • On this level of hell are Cleopatra ("Then follows Cleopatra, lustful queen.") and Samaramis, legendary queen of Assyria(Dante).
