Herding the sinners: Dore

by DRM

Gustave Doré’s illustration to Dante’s Inferno. Plate X: Canto III: Charon herds the sinners onto his boat. “Charon the demon, with eyes of glede, / Beckoning to them, collects them all together, / Beats with his oar whoever lags behind.'” (Longfellow’s translation, which isn’t particularly good, it must be said.)
