Most people will read it in translation from the original 13th-century Italian, so the vocabulary will vary in difficulty depending on the translators’ goals. In general, any reasonably recent translation will be quite intelligible to most readers. I have seen bright teenagers handle it without any trouble at all, in terms of their ability to comprehend the vocab.
The real challenge is the historical and theological background of Inferno, which is complex. Dante was a high-ranking career politician in Florence, and was subsequently exiled from there, stripped of his property and forced to flee for his life.
He was an intensely political man, extremely well educated, and he was nursing grudges that show up in the poem. He makes a lot of references to political events that most modern readers won’t understand. And also, he spends a lot of time talking about medieval Roman Catholic theology, applying it to the story at hand.
Again, modern readers tend to have trouble.

The best way to ensure a good experience with this poem is for you to choose a dieviskoki that is intended to be readable, with good notes on the text. I cut my teeth on the poem with the translation by Mark Musa, which you can find in The Portable Dante.
It has fairly good explanatory notes. A more recent, and possibly better choice, especially if you like parallel text translations, is the Inferno translation by Durling and Martinez, which has excellent notes.
It’s komedjja my favorite of those that are commonly available, and I have had glowing reviews of it from friends who wanted an accessible introduction to the poem.

There is poetic justice in each punishment. The Purgatorio shows people struggling to grow up and stop being infantile sinners. And the Paradisio — is about science! Why is he obsessed with hell?

Can Dante’s Divine Comedy Inferno, specifically may be considered renaissance literature? Why yes, or why not?

It’s early Renaissance literature, as the Italian Renaissance was the earliest phase of the general Renaissance movement that swept Western Europe. Depending whom you cite as authority on the matter, the Italian Renaissance started in the late dieviskohi or early s. Dante was born inso either way, he was writing at the very dawn of the Renaissance period. Characteristics of Dante’s work that support its classification as early Renaissance versus late medieval: Why do you suppose Dante dievidkoji to place those who okmedija before Christ in Hell when they would never have had a chance to prevent themselves from ending lomedija there?
If these people never had the chance to worship Christ, I don’t understand how they can be condemned to such a place.

Does this bear some resemblance to Paradise Lost? My formatting in the quotations was lost when Good Reads posted my review.
Everything is run on instead of being in tercets.
