The Burning Heart   Thursday, April 12, 2001 (7:10 p.m.) 

I was wondering if anyone knew where the dialog from the "the burning heart" was taken from, I mean what part of the movie. Is Hannibal quoting a passage from Dante's The Divine Comedy, which one?
thanxs.

Hannibal is quoting a few lines from the first sonnet in Dante's La Vita Nuova (The New Life). This is an earlier and perhaps lesser known work, yet very beautiful. In regard to the movie, the discussion about the "burning heart" takes place either at the end or during the intermission of the opera, between Lecter and Pazzi and his wife, Allegra. I hope this helps. - J

it comes from the scene after lector,pazzi and his wife have watched the opera
and lector meets pazzi's wife for the first time.

"""He woke her then, and trembling and obedient, she ate that burning heart out of his hand. Weeping, I saw him then depart from me.

Could he daily feel a stab of hunger for her? Find nourishment in the very sight of her? I think so. But would she see through the bars of his plight, and ache for him?"""""

Where it comes from   Saturday, August 30, 2003 (9:48 a.m.) 

Here is the original and a translation of Dante Alighieri's La Vita Nuova III, it includes "He woke her then, and trembling and obedient, she ate that burning heart out of his hand. Weeping, I saw him then depart from me."

The translation isnt as cool as the one on the movie though.

Not too sure about the other bit though
