Week 8: Dante's Inferno

Assignments - Reading - Resources - Images


Digital Dante provides translations of the Divine Comedy by Henry W. Longfellow and by Allen Mandelbaum (Mandelbaum's translation is really wonderful, although it is not in the public domain by any means, and I am surprised they were able to host it at their website).

You can see a great Map of Hell at the World of Dante website (this table listing the Sins-People-Punishments is also very useful!).

The Princeton Dante project has many Italian and English texts, plus Italian and English audio!

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has a detailed article about Dante.

You will find many illustrations at UT Austin's Dante's Inferno: An Illustrated Journey.

There is a Dante Chronology at ItalNet.
