IT3230 Dante- Divine Comedy II

Term 1

Convenor: Dr Stefano Jossa

Assessment
Formative piece (0%); Essay (80%) 3,000-3,500 words
Oral presentation (20%)

Plus a formative piece of work not counting towards the final mark.

Overview 
The course is based on a close reading of Paradiso. Students will be expected to read the whole cantica, but selected canti will be set for detailed critical commentary. As supplementary reading students will be asked to read and to (re)familiarise themselves with the other sections of the Divine Comedy.

The course focuses in detail on the text of the Divine Comedy with an emphasis on the analysis of its literary and poetic qualities. The course aims to develop an understanding of Dante’s other writings, in particular for their links to the Divine Comedy.
