Dante's CV in 3 easy steps

That is, the law of 25's:

Inferno 25
Dante's job that would make him famous: a poet as great as, or greater than, Ovid. He succeeded.

Purgatorio 25
Dante's would-be job: as a physician. He quit.

Paradiso 25
Dante's dream job: to be called back to Florence as a Culture minister. He failed.
