This series, which is open to the public, invites participants to examine, discuss, and enjoy one of the most influential works ever written: the Inferno from Dante’s Commedia. We will read the poem as a group, discuss its deeper meanings and symbolism, view illustrations to appreciate its visual history, and use examples from contemporary literature, film, history, and pop culture to better understand Dante’s writing today.
