Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, the best known of all poems written in the Italian language 700 years ago, takes us on a spiritual journey from a ghastly dark forest to the blissful light of a cosmic embrace, from exile to reintegration, from wretchedness to joy.
This is a FREE EVENT.
In the course of four Monday evenings, Prof. Daniela Boccassini will show us why Dante's cosmic perspective is as impelling today as ever:
1. December 7, 2020 - Dante's life and his source of inspiration: Beatrice
2. December 14, 2020 - The Divine Comedy: Inferno
3. December 21, 2020 - The Divine Comedy: Purgatorio
4. December 28, 2020 - The Divine Comedy: Paradiso
All episodes will be conducted IN ENGLISH ON ZOOM from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm (PT)
No previous knowledge of Dante's poem is required
