dante? more like darn-te

rodin the kiss

Rodin’s The Kiss was from his Gates of Hell, and shows Dante’s Inferno‘s Francesca getting serious with her husband’s younger brother Paolo. They were both killed by her husband.

Scholars point to the fact their lips don’t touch in the sculpture, suggesting they were killed before it ever happened, which, HELLO?! You might as well compare that to Claire Danes waking up to see baby Leo taking the poison in Romeo and Juliet!
