Canto XX - The Avaricious

" Just as our eyes, attached to worldly

And the grief that finds no outlet from the eyes
turns inward to intensify the anguish.”

— Translation by Mark Musa

The Avaricious
Having turned their backs on their fellow man, these souls lie prone, their backs to God in penance for their waste or hoard.
