DANTE IS COMING TO KENT THIS FALL SEMESTER!
Dante Alighieri was born in Florence in 1265, but it was his exile in 1301 that inspired him to become the author of Italy's most enduring literary work, The Divine Comedy: a poem comprised of three separate volumes that details a journey in the afterlife through Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory) and Paradiso (Paradise). Dante's vast, encyclopedic knowledge and his incredible insight into human character make The Divine Comedy a window into nearly every aspect of medieval history, theology, politics, art and culture; in particular as it relates to Florence. This course is an introduction to Dante and the history of Florence through critical reading and discussion of the Divine Comedy and selected minor works. Though primarily taught through a combination of lecture and discussion, the course will also focus on the use of art, film, music, performance, digital media and other interdisciplinary methods that have been used to interpret and further our understanding the Divine Comedy and its lasting fascination and influence. The course and the readings will be offered in English.
Register now! And join us on a journey through hell and back!
