He ended up getting killed, and ended up in Hell. However, being a religious man, [[LikeABadassOutOfHell he formulated a plan to escape.]] He eventually ended up in Heaven, where God, impressed by this, gave the man his life back and promised he'd go to Heaven one day if he gave an accurate description of the afterlife. Too bad for Dante ValuesDissonance doesn't apply to God.

In Limbo, Dante names a whole bunch of poets and writers of ancient epics who weren't baptised, and thus unable to enter Heaven, yet were awesome enough (to him at least) to be spared the torments of Hell itself. Somewhere in that canto Dante basically squees in delight at being able to meet his heroes.

[[WMG: Dante is having a Near Death Experience]]
His trek through hell, purgatory and heaven are simply a wildly detailed hallucination of his idea of what the afterlife should be like. This would explain the failures in physics and why he can name the specific people in their representative places. They're where he thinks they should go.

* Interestingly, several critics think the "Dark Wood" that he finds himself in at the very start of the epic is a metaphor for being suicidally depressed (since the ''other'' dark wood in ''Inferno'' is inhabited by the souls of the Suicides and the self-destructive in general.)

This poem is his attempt to join them in literary immortality.

It all makes sense.
