Cambridge Vertical Readings in Dante's Comedy

Beginning 18 October 2012 and continuing over four years, a team of Dante experts from the U.K. and abroad will carry out a series of public lectures on the Comedy that explore the 'vertical' connections between cantos of the same number across all three canticles. This is the first time that this method of reading (a method that has been discussed by Dante scholars and executed very successfully in studies of single cantos) will be systematically employed to tackle the entire poem.
