ITAL 276 - Dante’s Divine Comedy I

3 hours
This course will first study Dante’s La Vita Nuova as the preparatory text to Dante’s great poem, the Divine Comedy. The majority of this course concentrates on the poem’s first canticle, the Inferno. Through a close examination of the text, this course will look to the poem’s manuscript art as the visual commentary that accompanied the work in its earliest circulations. It will also consider the art that shaped the poet’s creation of the poem and the places it describes. This course is conducted in English.

Listed also as MFL 276
