Dante‘s Paradiso

October 8, 2021

In this lecture for East and West Learning Connections, I talk about who Dante Alighieri was, and I discuss his 14th century poem Paradiso.  Dante’s Paradiso has some beautiful images - of fish swimming in pools, of sunlight reflecting off the snow, and of light being filtered through coloured glass. All of these beautiful images are metaphors, and it’s the power of these metaphors that has made Dante stand the test of time. (1 hour)
