Description: This course is an introduction to Dante & his cultural milieu through a critical reading of the Divine Comedy & selected minor works (Vita nuova, Epistle to Cangrande, Convivio, De vulgari eloquentia). An analysis of Dante's autobiography, the Vita nuova, establishes the poetic & political circumstances of the Comedy's composition. Readings of Inferno, Purgatory & Paradise seek to situate Dante's work within the intellectual & social context of the late Middle Ages, with special attention paid to philosophical, political & theological concerns. Topics of the Divine Comedy explored over the course of the course include the relationship between ethics & aesthetics; love & knowledge; and exile & history. #Dante # Divine #comedy # Inferno
