Virgil also explains the structure of hell, how it is divided into circles and each circle is the place where those guilty of certain sins are being punished. Through out the poem, the souls that Virgil and Dante encounter, all try to justify their sin and they indirectly ask for pity. Here is where Dante the poem leaves the decision up to the reader, whether or not the punishment fits the sinner and the sin and whether or not they deserve pity. Pier delle Vigne was a famous Chancellor of the Emperor Frederick II, he is in hell because he committed suicide after being accused of treason.

Pier delle Vigne was a famous Chancellor of the Emperor Frederick II, he is in hell because he committed suicide after being accused of treason. Guido da Montefeltro, on the other hand, was an important military general, strategists, and a politician.
Guido is in hell because he was found guilty of false counsel. We find Pier delle Vigne and Guido da Montefeltro in different locations, circles, of hell; Pier is in the second ring of the sixth circle of hell and Guido, on the contrary, is the eighth bolgia of the eighth circle of hell.
The sixth circle of hell is where those guilty of violence are punished. Farther below the sixth circle, we find the eighth circle of hell or the Malebolge. In the Malebolge the souls guilty of fraud are punished.
The eighth circle consists of ten bolgias which represent the different kinds of fraud. Dante describes the Malebolge as a city of disintegration, it begins with cliff and a waterfall, and it is very stinky.
Canto Dante tells the different forms of fraud, one being false counsel where Guido is being punished. Even though both committed different sins and are punished in different ways, Pier delle Vigne and Guido da Montefeltro have things in common; both play the victim and try to justify their sin while in some obscure way they ask for pity.
These trees are the people who reside in that circle: Dante and Virgil hear a voice but they do not see anyone there. Dante gets close to a tree and breaks on its branches; the tree starts bleeding and later identifies himself as Pier delle Vigne, a former Chancellor of Emperor Frederick II.
Pier, then, tells Virgil and Dante the reason why he committed suicide was because envious groups turned the Emperor against him, destroyed his reputation, and put him in prison; he was tortured, and after loosing his good reputation and name he felt too ashamed and decided to take his life.
Dante feels sorry for him, because he too understands the importance of a good reputation. When telling his story, Pier tries to justify his suicide by playing the victim, explaining the fact that he was innocent and that he did not do anything to hurt others.
The reader can argue, regardless of what the envious group did to Pier, he still denied a gift from God, life. Once Virgil and Dante finished talking to Pier, they went ahead with their journey to later find themselves on the edge of a cliff with a waterfall.
Dante the poem describes the place as very stinky. In the Malebolge we find ten bolgias that represent the different kinds of fraud; each bolgia is worst than the previews one. In these bolgias is where find souls guilty of seduction, flattery, thieves, false counselors, to falsifiers, and alchemists.
In the eighth bolgia, where those guilty of false counsel reside, Dante and Virgil meet Guido da Montefeltro.
Guido was a very important military strategist and a politician.
After a while, Guido felt guilty and not right to fight against the church; he reconciled to the church and became a Franciscan Friar. Pope Boniface asks Guido for military advice because he needed help recapturing fortresses form the army.AN OVERVIEW OF PERIOD INSTRUMENT CDs () [Compiled by Dr.
