This session is a whirlwind tour through Dante’s whirlwind of the sins of the flesh. We’ll meet the Hoarders and the Wasters, the Gluttons, the Wrathful and the Sullen, and, of course, poor, pathetic, lustful Francesca and Paolo. If you are reading along, we’ll be considering Cantos V through VIII.
Here is the version of the text we are using for this course: The Divine Comedy
Also, I found a nice animated treatment of The Inferno that you might want to watch. Check it out here.
Please do consider inviting friends and family to join us. The chance to unpack this work in a setting like this doesn’t come along every day.
