? Dante allegorizes the sins of incontinence with the figure of the she-wolf in canto I. This suggests that all the sins of incontinence are similar in some way. Looking at the descriptions of the sins of incontinence (lust, gluttony, greed, wrath / sloth), how does Dante present the punishments of the sinsand by extension, the sins themselvesas similar? What elements are present in the different sins? What elements are similar in the narrative? How are the guardians similar? Conversely, does Dante present any particular sin of incontinence as fundamentally different? How? Why?
