Wikipedia.org/***DREAM-- Beatrice Portinari--In this dream, a mighty figure appeared before him, and spoke to him. Although he could not make out all the figure said, he managed to hear "Ego dominus tuus", which means "I am your Lord". In the figure's arms was Beatrice, sleeping and covered by a crimson cloth. The figure awoke Beatrice, and made her eat Dante's burning heart. An English translation of this event, as described in La Vita Nuova, appears below:
Dante: "Tanto gentile e tanto onesta pare la donna mia.... mostrasi sì piacente a chi la mira, che dà per gli occhi una dolcezza al core.." Nel dipinto Dante e Beatrice immaginati da Henry Holiday nel 1883.
Beatrice and Dante - Beatrice Portinari Dante fell in love with Beatrice when he was only nine years old, but would love her all his life. Unfortunately his parents signed a contract for him to marry someone else, so he and Beatrice could never become a couple. Then she tragically died when he was 25. Yet in his writings, she was everywhere. She appeared briefly to him in Inferno, then escorted him through heaven in Paradiso. Here we see them together at last.
