I really enjoy the Modern Scholar series, and Dr Shutt's lectures (this and other topics) are educational and liberally sprinkled with wit. Dante's Divine Comedy comes to life as Shutt reaches into the minds of Dante and his contemporaries, tells us the story and some of what was going on at the time. Very enjoyable.
The Divine Comedy is a very deep epic which means that there is much that the first-time reader will miss. Dr. Shutt does an excellent job explaining all kinds of useful information for interpreting, understanding, and enjoying the Comedy at a very high level.
Insightful, historically informative, great listen
I didnt know the history of Dante or the people he mentions in the Divine Comedy and this explains a lot of it. Great way of understanding why Dante wrote the things he did.
