I'm a Medieval Italian Poet and philosophical thinker.
I was not forced to travel to China with my father and my uncle. They wanted me to go, they thought I could be a help for the trip. I decided to take their offering and went to China with them.
I was basically forced to travel. When I was exiled from Florence, all of my possessions were seized and I lost my home.
Nice to meet you Marco. Have you written a poem before? I started writing my greatest literature, The Divine Comedy, after my exile as I was traveling. A beautiful woman named Beatrice Portinari created the backbone of my poem. The poem is based on my life as well as the three tiers of Christian afterlife: Heaven, Hell, and the Purgatory.
