HUM 5207 Dante's Divine Comedy

John Ruskin called Dante "the central man of all the world." This "central man," Dante Alighieri, is the focus and delight of our study. We journey with him, the poet and pilgrim, through the 'Inferno,' 'Purgatorio,' and 'Paradiso' of his Divine Comedy. Our main goal is to know the Divine Comedy as literary art in itself and in its literary contexts.
