Don Juan in Hell

The Devil is at a loss to explain why anyone would want to be in that ""most angelically dull place,"" heaven. The Statue, who has been there, agrees, comparing heaven to a classical music concert: Most people don't really appreciate it--they just think they ought to, he says. The hero who is being pursued by a determined woman falls asleep in the mountains of Spain and dreams himself as the legendary lover Don Juan, who is locked in a sprawling debate with three other denizens of Darkness: the Devil who has more charm and wit than fire and brimstone, a Soldier once felled by Don Juan in an earthly duel, and that man's daughter, Ana, whom Don Juan had seduced.
