I hope you all enjoy Dante this week. I think he is one of the most underrated poets of all time. I mean that. In my opinion, he is greater even than Shakespeare; perhaps this has something to do with the fact that in English, we are always dealing with him in translation. His views of love are profound, and people get wrapped up in the drama of heaven and hell and miss the love. I want you guys to focus on the love themes in his work.
I'd love to know what you guys think!
