This Fall '21, Lake Erie College will be offering Dante’s Divine Comedy, an Italian course commemorating the 700th Anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s Death.
Dante's Divine Comedy is a world literature masterpiece that has come to be regarded as one of our greatest human treasures. It offers some of the most imaginative, stirring and beautiful poetry ever written. It is an eschatological adventure as Dante takes us through the three transmundane “places” of Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. During this imaginary journey, the poet explores the weaknesses and strengths of the human soul. It is an ethical journey, an extraordinary investigation in search for human happiness.
