Name That Book!

And now, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for Name That Book! We’ve identified several people in our studio audience who think they know a thing or two about “great” literature (no not you, Professor Bloom), so we’re going to challenge them. The first one to identify the “home” of the following passage wins a pat on the back from the Writer’s Shadow! 

I am the way into the doleful city,

I am the way into eternal grief,

I am the way to a forsaken race.

Justice it was that moved my great creator;

Divine omnipotence created me,

And highest wisdom joined with primal love.

Before me nothing but eternal things

were made, and I shall last eternally.

Abandon hope, all you who enter.”
