Paolo e Francesca (Canto V) Lyrics
Thus I descended
down to the second (circle)
Here it comes Minos, the infernal judge ……

Dante and Virgilio go down to the second circle where they meet Minosse
And then
two souls come to me
and tell me how they were killed
condemned in the name of love

Here Dante and Virgilio come across two souls
And the woman
she only talks to me
she realized her dream
but the sentence everything has drowned

Only the female one talks to Dante: she's Francesca, she finds herself down here in hell with her loved Paolo
Love spares no one
to those who love
love's back always somehow
you can not stop

Referring to renowned sentence: “Amor, ch’a nullo amato amar perdona”
....And the story of their agonies
make me sad, i want to cry
So I asked them how they got in hell
and how they have surrendered to love

Dante gets sad, and asks the lovers how they yielded to a "wrong" love; and they remember
She told me that one day they were reading
for delight, of Lancelot
they were alone and without fear
There was a kiss …

Galeotto was the book and he who wrote it !
Literally translated from the known sentence: "galeotto fu quel libro e chi lo scrisse"
