LALL 955 - Dante in the Modern World


Dante’s Divine Comedy has been highly influential on art, music, and drama from its own time to the present. The shaping power of the poet’s journey, his search for answers to ultimate questions, his quest for order and its reflection in his art continue to inspire reactions from fellow artists. The course considers a number of works reflecting this influence in several media: drama (Beckett, Sartre, Brecht), poetry (Baudelaire), music (Liszt, Puccini, Zandonai), and the visual arts. We concentrate on the Inferno, but also consider the Paradiso and Purgatorio. Formerly HU 495
