Topics in Medieval Italian Literature and Culture: Dante Pop: The Divine Comedy in Popular Culture

Simone Marchesi

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

A cultural icon no less than a cultural product, Dante’s imaginative universe enjoys a pervasive presence in popular culture. Matching a reading of the Inferno with analysis of different media products, the course studies Dante’s presence in genres as different as graphic novels and theater productions, advertisements and sci-fi narratives, rock and rap music, video-and board games, satirical vignettes and political speeches in the Italian and Anglo-American world.
