Dante’s Divine Comedy to Begin in Late January 2014

Michelino_DanteAndHisPoemI’ll be booking sessions in Ross House for this course, which has generated a lot of interest.  In it we’ll follow Dante on his epic explorations of the farthest stretches of the medieval cosmos and the innermost workings of the human psyche.  Sinners, saints and a representative sampling of all sorts in between are down for a visit and a chat, and even in translation Dante’s verse sweeps the reader along at an astonishingly brisk pace.  Wonders and horrors galore, in a master-class on medieval poetry, theology and philosophy.  If you haven’t already done so, you can register your interest (no commitment required at this point) via the “Contact Us” link on the MLS homepage.
