    You can recognize a small truth because its opposite is a falsehood The opposite of a great truth is another truth Niels BohrI was thinking about Dante the other day and wondering how one could approach him from the angle of a GoodReads review One of the obvious problems is that he lived a long time ago, and many of the cultural referents have changed You re constantly having to think Well, nowadays what he s saying would correspond to THAT It isn t so bad in Hell, when there is plenty of entertainment to be had in seeing how the different sins are punished, and indulging your schadenfreude Then Purgatory tells a moral story that s or less timeless if you go for that sort of thing, but once you arrive in Paradise it starts getting seriously tricky A lot of the stuff at first sight just seems irrelevant to the 21st century world all these explanations about the mechanics of Ptolomaic astronomy, and Dante querying the inhabitants of ...

    I once thought I d write an essay on how long it takes a serious author of fiction or nonfiction before he or she inevitably quotes Dante If I were to write a novel myself this is a hypothetical grammatical construction , I d probably manage about a page before I d exclaim that I am lost, and middle aged, and in the middle of a dark forest I d try to kill off annoying acquaintances and punish them severely for their lack of admiration for me and my creativity not to mention my sarcasm and irony , and of course I would meet my teenage love and be joined together forever in eternal happiness in the end or maybe not, come to think of it, I might skip that part , after spending a life travelling the underworld in the company of the most brilliant author I can think of Dante fulfilled all his and my dreams with the Divina Commedia, and I envy him his bravery and talent, not to mention his ability to write in that beautiful Italian Howeve...

    I attempt to rewrite the Divine ComedyIn the middle of the journey of my lifeI came across a man named TrumpWho seemed bent on causing much strifeO how he was an unpleasant, fleshy lump Like some hobgoblin of the child s imaginationOr a thing that in the night goes bump.But in spite of lengthy cogitationI find I have produced fewer words Than members of the crowd at an inaugurationI ve doubtless disappointed the Dante nerdsAnd before long may well concede defeatMy plan, I admit, was strictly for the birdsAlas Success will not these efforts greetI am totally running out of steamAnd will soon be mocked by some misspelled tweetI had despaired Then last night, in a dreamI heard a voice say, Manny, just have some fun.Go on, I tell you, it ll be a scream Master, I said, I think I m not the one Fear not, he answered All things will be well.Recount the tale of Trump and Kim Jong Un But first, I asked, What is the place in HellReserved, I he...

    THE DARING, somewhat COMIC, and also DIVINE, INVENTIOIt is very difficult not to be lured by the highly intelligent craft of Durante degli Aliguieri DA And may be it is not a coincidence that he was the exact contemporary of Giotto, his fellow Florentine For if Giotto planted the seed for a pictorial representation of the world in which man, at the center, and through a window, delivers to us a naturalistic depiction of divine stories, Dante also used his writing to posit himself as the Author who through his fictional persona or Alter Ego, gives us the viewpoint to contemplate the full cosmos His cosmos, but for us to share.Still, we modern readers, in spite of Modernist and PostModernist awareness, are still fooled by DA s handling of illusion, and easily become pilgrims and start on a literary trip than ready to absorb everything that DA wants us to see, and think, and believe.POLITICSSo, for example, we will learn his po...

    Commedia Divine Comedy, Dante AlighieriThe Divine Comedy Italian Divina Commedia is a long narrative poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c 1308 and completed in 1320, a year before his death in 1321 It is widely considered the preeminent work in 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 1976 1335

    Reading the Divine Comedy at seventeen was, for me, to see the world sub specie aeternitatis Apparently that s not okay in the World s eyes Writing it, in the 14th Century, was not considered okay either So Dante was banished for life from Florence.In the Comedy eternal flame is the just deserts of corrupt conformity That doesn t seem quite right in the eyes of the comfortably politically correct, back then as now But they, like it or not, always have the final say And what they say, goes So reading this literary landmark for the first time, when I was seventeen, marked the inauguration of a colossal climacteric in my life The winds of change, back then, were howling all around me and as if in reaction Dante s vertical landscapes, ascending and descending, morphed within my mind to become the central mythos of my world and my young spirit.For Dante s work states clearly from his symbolic POV that we CAN find lasting happiness in spi...

    Plumbing the crucible of happenstance.I should give a quick intro and say that I rarely EVER, EVER re read a book I should also mention that 3 years ago I had never cracked Dante s Divine Comedy Now, I am finishing the Divine Comedy for the 3rd time I ve read Pinsky s translation of the Inferno I ve read Ciardi I ve flirted with Mandelbaum and danced with Hollander, but from Canto 1 of Inferno Hell to Canto XXXIII of Paradiso Heaven, I can t say I ve read a better version than the Clive James translation He replaced the terza rima A B A, B C B, C D C, D E D E E a measure hard to write without poetic stretch marks in English with the quatrain, and in doing so made the English translation his own It gives the Divine Comedy the verbal energy and the poetry that makes inferior translations a slog and makes Dante so damn difficult to translate well A mediocre translation might capture the stripes but lose the tiger Clive James pul...

    The Divine Comedy is so divine I pass the redundancy that we can bring some of Dante s narration to our day, without necessarily dividing our moments in stages, and we do not even have to die to see the stages we have passed Nowadays humanity, so sordid and unmasked, acts, treating one another personally, as if it had a particular Heaven of false power, knowing that it actually lives a real Hell Worse still is not to reach out to the next, pushing them to innumerable Purgatorys at once, offering no other choice The owners of power gaining millions and millions, pretend to have mercy on suffering humanity, continuing with their shenanigans and lies, wanting the humiliated citizen to believe he is in Heaven, because they are still alive These greedy people whom we know very well, live a true and particular Hell, in the dispute of who can do The poor, suffering workers are already in Purgatory Until, from time to time they feed a fals...
