Summary:

This lecture focuses on the middle zone of Inferno the area of violence (Inferno XII-XVI). Introductory remarks are made on the concentration of hybrid creatures in this area of Hell and followed by a close reading of cantos XIII and XV. The pilgrim's encounter with Pier delle Vigne (Inferno XIII) is placed in literary context (Aeneid III). The questioning of authority staged in this scene resurfaces in the circle of sodomy (Inferno XV) where the pilgrim's encounter with his teacher Brunetto Latini is read as a critique of the humanistic values he embodied.00:00 - Chapter 1.
