Canto 1. Apollo (March 2015)
Dante opens canto 1 of Paradiso in the poem by praising
God and by saying that anyone who has visited heaven can not
describe what they've seen because words and intellect are inadequate.
Acknowledging his limitations, Dante beseeches Apollo for help.
Beatrice describes the harmony of the spheres, how things are ordered,
and how this is the structure that makes the universe resemble God.
