Cambridge Vertical Readings in Dante's Comedy

Cambridge Vertical Readings in Dante's Comedy's image
Created: 2012-12-14 18:28
Institution: Department of Italian
Description: Beginning 18 October and continuing over four years, a team of Dante experts from the U.K. and abroad will carry out a series of public lectures on the Comedy that explore the 'vertical' connections between cantos of the same number across all three canticles. This is the first time that this method of reading (a method that has been discussed by Dante scholars and executed very successfully in studies of single cantos) will be systematically employed to tackle the entire poem.
The project has been funded for 2012-2013 by the Department of Italian at Cambridge and CIRN.
The Public Lectures are at 6pm in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College, Cambridge
