This twenty-four-lecture course is intended to help you analyze and appreciate the long poem by Dante Alighieri (1265-3121) known as the Divine Comedy. One of the most profound and satisfying poems ever written, the Divine Comedy (or simply the Commedia, to use Dante's own title) is well worth our continuing study. In its unified narrative structure, Dante incorporates aspects of the biblical and classical traditions, weaving these together in a brilliant synthesis that has helped form the basis for Western writers ever since. This two part Course contains two Course Guide Books and twelve audio cassette tapes consisting of 24 thirty minute lectures: Reading the Poem- Issues and Editions; A Poet and His City -Dante's Florence; Literary Antecedents, I; Literary Antecedents, II; "Abandon Every Hope, All You Who Enter"; The Never-Ending Storm; Heretics; The Seventh Circle- The Violent; The Sins of Simony; The False Counselors; The Ultimate Evil; The Seven-Story Mountain; Purgatory's Waiting Room; The Sin of Pride; The Vision to Freedom; Homage to Virgil; Dante's New Guide; Ascending the Spheres; An Emporer Speaks; The Circle of the Sun - Saints and Sages; A Mission Revealed - Encounter with an Ancestor; Can a Pagan Be Saved?; Faith, Hope, Love, and the Mystic Empyrean; and "In My End Is My Beginning".
