The recently launched anthology of language art and poetry, The Dark Would, is titled for Dante: ‘in the midst of my journey through life, I found myself in a dark wood’. Editor Phil Davenport adapted and printed this dendrological illustration on one of the first pages. It resembles the circuits of tree rings, but is in fact an adapted image of Dante’s circles of hell from an early twentieth century translation, emptied of its original annotation.
