This epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between c. 1308 and his death in 1321 is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The Divine Comedy serves as the physical (scientific), political, and spiritual guidebook of Dante's Fourteenth Century universe. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church. It helped establish the Tuscan dialect, in which it is written, as the standardized Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven; but at a deeper level, it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially Thomistic philosophy and the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas. Consequently, the Divine Comedy has been called "the Summa in verse". Dante Alighieri (1265 – 1321), was a major Italian poet of the Late Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, originally called Comedìa (modern Italian: Commedia) and later christened Divina by Boccaccio, is widely considered the most important poem of the Middle Ages and the greatest literary work in the Italian language.

Writing his "Comedy" (the epithet "Divine" was added by later admirers) in exile from his native Florence, Dante aimed to address a world gone astray both morally and politically. It tells the story of a character who is at one and the same time both Dante himself and Everyman.

The Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia) is an epic poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church by the 14th century. It helped establish the Tuscan language, in which it is written, as the standardized Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. On the surface, the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise or Heaven; but at a deeper level, it represents, allegorically, the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially Thomistic philosophy and the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas. Consequently, the Divine Comedy has been called "the Summa in verse". The work was originally simply titled Comedìa and was later christened Divina by Giovanni Boccaccio. The first printed edition to add the word divina to the title was that of the Venetian humanist Lodovico Dolce, published in 1555 by Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari.

Dante als Dichter der irdischen Welt

Der Kulturhistoriker Erich Auerbach (1892-1957) zählt zu den bedeutendsten Kulturwissenschaftlern und Romanisten des 20. Jahrhunderts. Wie viele andere bedeutende Gelehrte emigrierte er früh aus Deutschland, um der Verfolgung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu entgehen. Bereits 1929 erschien sein Buch zu Dante, das trotz des etwas komplizierten Titels einen runden Gesamtüberblick über das dichterische Schaffen des italienischen Nationaldichters gibt. Auerbach spürte in der Göttlichen Komödie, Dantes Hauptwerk, viele Realismen auf. Rückbezüge auf die Welt des Irdischen bleiben auch im Grauen der Hölle, in der Hoffnung des Fegefeuers und in der religiösen Ekstase des Paradieses deutlich. Dante schildert beispielsweise viele Zeitgenossen und ihre Sünden, die dann entsprechend gebüßt werden. Bei Auerbach wird das Universum Dantes eindrucksvoll lebendig.

November Promotion -- Free Copy. A Divine Comedy is a compilation of the author’s novels True and its sequel One. It is a star-crossed romance set in California, Britain, and Europe -- mainly France -- in 1985-86, whose theme is self-discovery. In the first half of the story, the main character Tom Spotted Tail Augustine Stearns, a hip Stanford preppy studying in France, grapples with, and struggles mightily to resolve, through his post-modern education and traditional Roman Catholic faith, the pressing and divisive issues of his day, i.e., race, class, religion, nationality, sexuality, and AIDS, especially as they relate to his formation and identity. During his first term abroad and grand tour, Tom journeys inward and, in the process, comes face to face with his working-class roots, biracial past, bisexual heart, Christian faith, saving God, and what it means to be true. In the second half of the story, Tom comes home from his studies in France for the Christmas holiday. Back in Los Angeles, the hip Stanford preppy finds himself in a lit Bel-Air pool and in the arms of a young man, surrendering to a psychosexual weakness far deeper than the shimmering blue waters and as old as the curse of Original Sin. Despite his repentance, frequenting the sacraments of the Church, and marriage to a brilliant blonde coed from Napa Valley, Tom again finds himself in the arms of the love that dare not speak its name, this time in France. Under the seductive power of this ancient Greco-Roman form of love, his own "thorn in the flesh...an angel of Satan" (2 Cor 12:7), intransigent as Saint Paul's, Tom is led deep into a Dantean woods of melancholic isolation and sin, spiritual correction and purification, but also, ultimately, unmerited love and redemption. In the course of this interior journey into his own unique versions of inferno, purgatorio, and, finally, paradiso, as both sinner and saint, Tom discovers what it means to be one, in weakness and in strength, in flesh and in spirit, in time and in eternity. This book is also available for purchase by Kindle device and app users in the Kindle Store on Amazon.com.
