He was a thief who lived in Pistoia , as his name "di Pistoia" meaning "of Pistoia" indicates; when he died, he was sent to the seventh bolgia round; in Italian, "ditch" or "pouch" of the eighth circle of Hell, where thieves are punished. In that bolgia his punishment was to be stung by a serpent, reduced to ashes, and then restored to his former shape for more torturing. Dante and Virgil meet him and ask him why he was there. He replied that he stole a treasure from the Church of St. James in his hometown; he had wrongly accused an innocent man, Vanni della Nona, with the crime, for which della Nona was executed.

Reviewer notes

Part the first: I reference Vanni Fucci is alive and well and living in hell, the excellent short story by Dan Simmons. In the story, Sr Fucci tells a televangelist and his audience that since Dante Aligheri was the first person to vividly describe hell, its levels and inhabitants, Hell then shaped itself into that form and creation. Hell would thus remain that way until someone else re shaped it. Fucci has appeared to beg someone to take on this task so that he might have a chance of a slightl improved afterlife. My Amanda Friend says that she believes in the impossible because she is friends with me. I am glad to have a friend when the universe so clearly has a particular delight in mocking me. I did get an excellent education.

Midway this way of life we're bound upon, I woke to find myself in a dark wood, Where the right road was wholly lost and gone. Canst thou be Virgil? Thou that fount of splendour Whence poured so wide a stream of lordly speech? And greater honour yet they [Homer, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, and Lucan] did me—yea, Into their fellowship they deigned invite And make me sixth among such minds as they. Nay, but I tell not all that I saw then; The long theme drives me hard, and everywhere The wondrous truth outstrips my staggering pen. So we stirred Our footsteps citywards, with hearts reposed, Safely protected by the heavenly word. So may thy soul these many years abide Housed in thy body, and the after-light Of fame shine long behind thee.

Ariadne Collins, Vittoria Fallanca, Elena Lombardi, Francesca Southerden, and Alison Sperling for their insight and feedback on an early draft of this paper; and to the editors of this volume Christoph F. Holzhey and Arnd Wedemeyer for their comments and revisions on the last one. Weathering provides us with a guiding thread to study this relation in a twofold way. First, we take weathering in the strict etymological sense of the word, as an action associated with the weather, such as rain, wind, and snow. The second meaning of weathering that we bring to this analysis is more conceptual, as a notion belonging to a special class of words called enantiosemic. Enantiosemic words, sometimes called Janus words and named for their ability to look in two directions at once, bind together opposite connotations.
