Approaches to Teaching Dante's Divine Comedy, second edition

Dante's Divine Comedy can compel and shock readers: it combines intense emotion and psychological insight with medieval theology and philosophy. This volume will help instructors lead their students through the many dimensions—historical, literary, religious, and ethical—that make the work so rewarding and enduringly relevant yet so difficult.

Part 1, "Materials," gives instructors an overview of the important scholarship on the Divine Comedy. The essays of part 2, "Approaches," describe ways to teach the work in the light of its contemporary culture and ours. Various teaching situations (a first-year seminar, a creative writing class, high school, a prison) are considered, and the many available translations are discussed.

Reviews

"The authors in this volume expertly address both traditional and new trends in Dante scholarship, covering the field and breaking new ground. The editors do a superb job of bringing these themes together and providing a context for them." —Arielle Saiber, Bowdoin College
