The second time I swung,—yet spared your life,— That paid you for the kiss you gave my wife! You played me false, my friend! We tempted you, my friend, with all our might, And proved you in good sooth a noble knight; A veritable Joseph, sir, you are! But may I ask you why you played this part? He smiled, and from his smile a genial glow Of green mid-summer seemed to overflow, Filling with verdure all that barren place.

Adam Smith on Canto VI. Liszt's fifth piece, Orage Storm , comes with Byron's equating of meteorological and emotional weathers from canto The two lines quoted from stanza 72 fit the serene tone of the music, but only by ignoring the rejection of "human cities" two lines later.
The music, however, is independent of the text. Turner was an admirer of Byron's poetry and made scenes from the Pilgrimage the subject of several paintings. In addition he was among those commissioned to provide drawings to be engraved for William Finden 's landscape illustrations to Byron , which also included views from the poem.
It had captured the painter's imagination on his first visit there in and he had made studies of the place many times since then. Though the painter might first have been drawn to the spot on account of Byron's poem, what he made of it came from close personal acquaintance over the intervening years.

Because the wrathful people were hateful during their lifetime, they now reside in a river of hate.
These people are divided into three categories. There are three different kinds of wrath: the actively wrathful, the sullen who kept wrath inside and are choking below the surface , and the vindictive. First is open and violent hatred, and their punishment is that they strike out at each other in almost any fashion; the second type of hatred is the slow, sullen hatred.
The punishment for this type is that they choke on their own rage, gurgling in the filth of Styx, unable to express themselves because they become choked on their own malevolent hatred.
Finally, the vindictive strike out at others. Dante's character begins to change in this circle. Here the poets come to the end of the first section of Hell, that of incontinence, and move to the second section, that of violence, which begins in the fifth circle.
