Dante-Satan

embrace as symbol of forgiveness of sin, need to sympathize with the suffering (the tears) of the greatest sinner

introspection and self-recognition: need to look into the center of the mirror-like surface of the frozen lake; what Dante sees there is just himself

Dante = Satan

that insight and his capacity to forgive set him free

implication of the impossibility of escaping hell while his soul is tainted with anger, hate, vengefulness, and self-righteousness
