Dante's horrifically sublime depiction of hell with his stories of corruption, lust, betrayal, and greed is as grippingly compelling today as it was over 700 years ago.  In this class, we will follow Dante and his guide Virgil as they descend into hell and explore the abyss of the human mind. Alongside the Inferno, we will read a selection of Classical myths that inspired Dante's vision. Readings will provide the framework for class exercises and written assignments that will help you embark on your journey as academic writers.
