because he was on the edge of killing him self.

Also, he was pretty much banished from Rome, and if he stepped in he could be punished to death. He wrote it as pretty much a big hidden f bomb to all the people who wronged him(like the pope) by putting them in hell

Dante wrote "Inferno" as part of his larger work, "The Divine Comedy," to explore the Christian concept of the afterlife and the consequences of sin. Through the vivid imagery of Hell in "Inferno," he depicted a journey of moral and spiritual transformation, ultimately aiming to inspire readers to reflect on their own actions and choices.

Dante Alighieri wrote the Divine Comedy which had three parts to it. They were Hell (Inferno), Purgatory (Purgatorio), and Paradise (Paradiso). He wrote it to describe the journey he took through them in his imagination.

The Divine Comedy was a political satire. We do not see the political elements the same way that Dante's contemporary readers did, because the specific people who were satirized by Dante, as well as their political factions and philosophies, are long gone and forgotten. So now it just reads like an elaborate fantasy.
