There seem to be many movies about evil or the Devil, but very few movies that actually focus on Hell. For example, we were only able to discover one title of Inferno in film form and it was a weird puppet-based film. Why do you think there are so few films about Hell itself but so many about evil?
Dante believed that his adventures in Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven actually happened. He still writes his story because he wants to share what he learned with the rest of the world. What do you think Dante learned through his journeys in Inferno?

Dante is now entering the Eighth Circle of Hell. This is the level for Frauds, which spans a wide variety of fraudulent behavior. What kinds of modern-day people would you consider frauds and why? Personally, I always remember Ashlee Simpson on Saturday Night Live, when she was caught lip-syncing and had to run offstage.
