Dante Revisited: Euro-Heaven and Euro-Hell

Avatar do usuário Henry Cunha 10000 3 16 177
Following an intensive week of studying Dante, a literature student awakens from a fitful night’s sleep and phones his friend:

“You won’t believe the dream I just had!”

“What was it?”

“Well, it was like an updated Dante, first a tour of Euro-heaven and then a tour of Euro-hell.”

“So what was Euro-heaven like?”

“Like the real Europe, except much better organized: The British were the jailers, the French were the cooks, the Italians were the lovers, the Swiss were the bankers and the Germans were the mechanics.”

“And Euro-hell?”

“Almost the same… except the British were the cooks, the French were the mechanics, the Italians were the bankers, the Swiss were the lovers and the Germans were the jailers.”
