I don't know if I've ever read any other books with so many layers as Dante's Divine Comedy! (And no, it doesn't count if you only read Inferno. The best comes later)

Paradiso (Dante) - recreate this classic / a theatrical play from Beatrice's perspective: a romp of high excitement and a wonder, she is -- as Beatrice leads 'him' through Paradise (and to what objective?)

An epic masterpiece and a foundational work of the Western canon, The Divine Comedy describes Dante's descent into Hell with Virgil as his guide; his ascent of Mount Purgatory and reunion with his dead love, Beatrice; and, finally, his arrival in Heaven. Examining questions of faith, desire, and enlightenment and furnished with semiautobiographical details, Dante's poem is a brilliantly nuanced and moving allegory of human redemption.
