Dante’s Inferno in MS Paint
For when even CliffsNotes is too strenuous a challenge, Brandon Matheson has created an abbreviated, animated version of Dante’s Inferno. In just under four minutes, you can visit every circle of Hell; hang out with some flaming tombs; meet Plato, Socrates, Virgil (and his gold vanity grillz); and even get into an ancient mythological dispute: Was Cerberus a three-headed dog or worm? It’s everything you need to get by in your high school English class discussion, provided your teacher is a fan of Adult Swim.
