Required reading: Dante, The Divine Comedy, Volume 1: The Inferno Length: 750-1000 words After reading Dante’s work, write an essay analyzing how historical and cultural context influenced his view of the Inferno. First, explain Dante’s medieval vision of hell in historical context. Next, reflect on how the logic of his categories of hell (the nine circles) and the nature of the sins and punishments might be different if Dante lived in the 21st century. Devise a detailed interpretation and vision of Dante’s twenty-first century version of hell based on the historical and cultural context today. Include revised divisions, categories or circles in the order you think best accommodates modern sinners. Include some examples (general or specific) of sinners who would fit into each category. Drawings or diagrams optional.
