I majored in Italian in college and took a great class on the the Divine Comedy. Inferno is the best of the three. Much more juicy than Purgatory or Paradiso.

"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here"
(from Canto 3)

Get yourself a study guide is best recommendation I'd have. It's not the easiest read. :-]

A theatre professor I had raved about it to the point I promised myself I would never read it. (Because sometimes I'm spiteful like that). If it IS a good read, let me know and I might break down and read it!

ditto what Jon said about the study guide - I slogged through it over a semester at Uni and, well, that's about all I remember about it, other than the really gruesome "illustrations" that went along with it

what's the deal - War and Peace to light a read for you??

Jon - thanks for the advice ... I'm going to try to slog through some of it ...

Brandy - love.love.love that you are spiteful like that!

Kathryn - ha, well, reading a book at the moment where it is mentioned throughout and feeling like "an uneducated clod" because I dont quite get the references ...

Hey... that's not a book. It's a porn I saw last Friday night.

Umm, I told you, watch Flashdance...there's at least 4 of the 7 rings of hell displayed on film for you...though it is the best film about a welder I've ever seen...

KellyNerd said...

Jas... That was Dante's D***O, not Inferno... =)) get your porn straight girl!

Cheek - I told you... I like that movie... the only thing that would make it better is Jen Beals being gay... =) but she made up for it on the LWord!
