ITTR 5250 - Dante’s Purgatory in Translation

This course explores canto-by-canto Dante’s second realm of the Afterlife. Particular attention will be paid to how various themes and motifs (the phenomenology of love, the relationship between church and state, status of classical antiquity in a Christian universe, Dante’s representation of the saved), differ from those explored in the Inferno. Prerequisite: ITTR 2260 or permission of instructor.

Credits: 3
