The Poets’ Dante: Twentieth-Century Responses book cover
with Sharon Dolin, Phillis Levin with Peter Covino
Date and Time: 
September 20, 2005 - 7:00PM to 9:30PM

Focusing on the act of translation as a source of artistic creation, this course works with Milton Glaser’s visual interpretation of Dante and explores several translations of selected passages from the Purgatorio. Students will be encouraged to re-envision or respond poetically to a section of the Purgatorio. Suggested readings include essays from The Poets’ Dante: Twentieth-Century Responses and a range of poems inspired by The Divine Comedy.
