Dante

Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), often known simply as Dante, was an Italian poet whose most enduring work is the Divine Comedy describing the afterlife. The Inferno portion, depicting the circles of Hell, is the best remembered.

His work inspired sculptor Auguste Rodin, in his Gates of Hell piece as well as his famous The Thinker (originally intended as part of the latter).
