Dante is the subject of the next two postcards in the album.  The first is dated 13 August 1945 and the postcard below 28 March 1945.  The second postcard shows Dante's first meeting with Beatrice, who was to become his muse, and also his final encounter with her, which was the only other time they met.   Wiki link here.
I confess to not having read any Dante, although I do have a copy of Dante's Inferno, in waiting  . . .

  1. Ha! I too haven't read any Dante (couldn't ever put down Flannery O'Conner) and have a copy of Inferno on the bookshelf. Will probably try to read it when I retire.
