Reading Dante's Inferno

Join us for a journey through Hell—Dante’s Inferno— a world in which a fascinating cast of characters, condemned to eternal punishment for sins committed on earth, recount their stories to the poet as he makes his pilgrimage through the underworld. In this first canticle of the Divine Comedy, readers encounter condemned lovers, corrupt popes and politicians, thieves, pagans, and a variety of sinners. Using a reader-friendly translation, we will examine Inferno’s key themes, overall message, and place in cultural and literary history. No grades issued.
