Punishment and Setting
It looks like a rugged terrain landscape, many places are broken or destroyed since the Harrowing of Hell (or when God descended to Hell). They must walk eternity with their head on backwards and tears in their eyes. Since they have seen things in front of them, they must now see things behind them. If they practiced sorcery (seen as a distortion of God's law), their bodies will be disfigured.
Feelings
Dante at first when he sees the people crying with their heads on backwards, he starts to cry.
Symbolism
Backwards heads
for those who wanted to see the future and now cannot even see in front of themselves. They tried to move themselves forward in time so they must go backwards for the rest of eternity.
Disfigured bodies
they disfigured God's law, so they will have disfigured bodies
Sinners
Grafters
People Recognized and Mentioned
Santa Zita
Bonturo
an unidentified Navarrese
Friar Gomita
Michel Zanche
Punishment and Setting
extremely dark and has a boiling tar pitch
punished by being thrown into a river of boiling pitch and tar
if they tried to escape, a horde of demons armed with grappling hooks and barbs stood guard over them, ready to tear them to pieces.
Feelings
When Virgil draws Dante back because the demons are coming, Dante seems confused. Dante does not seem scared, but rather a little amazed about the demon's physical characteristics.
Once Virgil tells Dante to come out, Dante is scared that the demons will not keep their promise to not harm him. Dante was pressed against Virgil in fear and was alert of every action by the demons
Symbolism
Sticky Pitch: sticky fingers of the grafters (since they love trickery and money)
Grappling hook: the sinners readiness to rend and tear whatever they can get their hands
The Patch: hides their faces since on earth, the sinners actions were hidden from men's on eyes.

The two are about to be on their way when Malacoda assigns 10 demons as their escorts. Dante is terrified of them and does not see why Virgil cannot lead them himself.
Dante feels pity when he realizes that the soul has ducked too late.

Reads
QUIZ
If we look at this from a political standpoint, we notice that Dante has mentioned at least three people from Greek mythology or background. We know that Dante did not like the Greeks, so a handful of Greeks are found here.
Allegorically
Tropological
"To deliver you from the strange woman, From the adulteress who flatters with her words; That leaves the companion of her youth And forgets the covenant of her God; For her house sinks down to death And her tracks lead to the dead; None who go to her return again, Nor do they reach the paths of life." - Proverbs 2:16-19
Ontological
In Bolgia 1, Dante sees the sinners hiding their faces because when they were living, they wanted to remembered, but now Hell has the roles reversed. The crimes they committed were horrendous, that they want to be forgotten.
