midway in life’s journey…

Inferno. Purgatorio, Paradiso. These are Dante’s Divine Comedy. “Midway in life’s journey…” The opening cantos send a chill with each rereading. Whether you’re new to or a veteran of the Commedia, here’s a chance to go through the the three books plus La Vita Nuovo in what looks to be a wonderful immersive online environment.

edX is an education portal where many great colleges and universities offer online courses in a stunning array of subjects. Georgetown University has launched a three-course series on La Divina Commedia. The unit on Inferno begins October 15.

Head over to the MyDante website to read about the course and then go to edX to sign up. See you in class!
