PostSubject: Dante Alighieri   Fri 2 Feb - 20:28

Of the most haunting works of Italian literature is Dante Alighieri's "La Divina Comedia" and particularly the first part of the said script: Inferno.

It was by watching an episode of Cold Case that I came across Dante and Inferno. It is about the journey of Dante deep into the structure of Hell...

I managed to get the script, but can't understand a thing - it's in its original language...Razz

Does anyone know where I can get a reliable English or French version of La Divina Comedia?

Nay, it was by watching Messiah that we came across this. Razz
Oh... And you needn't worry... You ought to be able to find some versions in some universities in developed countries...

Messiah? Sans blague! Tous les acteurs ressemblaient à ceux de Cold Case... Suspect
J'arrive pas à croire que je suis stupide au point de confondre Messiah et Cold Case... Shame be on me! Rolling Eyes

amazed Of course! Me want to read it... aarrrgghhhhh! All I've got is the original text (full, if you're interested Shizuka), so there is not much I can do to understand it well, unless I take old Italian courses Neutral

Shizuka ~ the saviour!!! drunken

Our country is indeed a developed one (Jugnauth and his pal Berenger yelled this to the whole world)! You can walk into all, and I mean ALL, the bookshops or library in this country and no one will know who the hell Dante is! Et nous sommes sensés être patriotiques?! Evil or Very Mad

I haven't read that book (L'ile du Dr.Moreau) but I saw the movie (an old one) long ago, I think before I was 10. That was one of the best movies I've watched and I never forgot the story.

Yesterday I was in the school library and ventured into a dusty corner behind the "Literature section" - even librarians don't go there I think - and guess what I saw!
Under thick layers of dust, there were tons of great books! Virgil, Dante, Tolstoy, Homer, Machiavelli and so many others, all there, unknown to the QEC students! Shocked What's more - they have never been borrowed in 5 years! Shame! Evil or Very Mad
I couldn't bear such a wastage and took Tolstoy's first volume of War and Peace.

oh, good reading then...i want to read the illiad and the odyssey full version...it's apparently entirely written in iambic pentameter which is really a hard thing to do. takes a genius or some well inspired time-waster to do that....
