CLST 060. Dante’s Divine Comedy
We shall study the entire work and journey with the Pilgrim through the three realms of the world beyond. Special attention will be devoted to Dante’s re-reading of previous texts, from the Latin classics to the burgeoning vernacular literatures of his own time. We shall also attempt to reconstruct Dante’s world view in the context of Medieval culture: his thoughts on life, death, love, art, politics, history, his personal story, and God.
