I don't understand why Dante organizes hell by specific circles. His interpretation forces these souls to one specific circle. However, if everyone commits multiple types of sins, why should they only be punished for one? For instance, if someone lived a gluttonous life, committed adultery, and killed themselves which circle with a belong to? Their sins would classify them to three separate circles. But according to Dante a person can only belong to one circle. I think Dante's interpretation of hell very subjective and requires a unique set of beliefs to be able to understand the punishment for one single type of sin. It really doesn't make sense to me.
