A Journey to Satan: Dante's Inferno

Alessandro Vettori (Italian)

How better to take revenge against your enemies than to write a story about your trip to see Lucifer and place them in hell? The first part of Dante's Divine Comedy is about strong emotions and the ferocity of being human – love, hate, anger, compassion, pity, violence, sodomy, fraud and cannibalism – as much as it is about philosophy, theology, and poetry.  In this seminar we will explore Dante’s masterpiece and its influence on modern literature.
