These lessons on the narrative structure of the Divine Comedyderive from my work as a teacher of "History of Italian Literature" in Italian high schools.
What there is not in these lessons: the general info on the Divine Comedy, on the age of its composition, on the transmission of the work, on its critical fortune, on the themes it develops. Nor is there any news on Dante's other works which also constitute capital experiences that the poet reworks in his masterpiece. I focused instead on the narrative structure of the poem: the Divine Comedyis a great story, that takes place over a week, it’s very colorful in the landscapes, crowded with characters, "splatter" in the story of the punishment of sinners, "impressionist" in painting the skies of the blessed.
The original essay (Il cammino e la pietate) is written in Italian, and published on the site www.nelmezzodelcammin.it, from where it can be downloaded.
