An Introduction to Dante

Dr. White’s introduction to this series sweeps a broad brush across a palette of major Catholic authors and poets, focusing on the three he considers the true “giants”: Shakespeare, Cervantes, and of course, Dante. White laments that few –– even scholars –– have read Dante; and that much of our Catholic literary heritage has been jettisoned. To White, Dante is the central poetic image for the Middle Ages, and the Inferno his personal vision –– one man’s journey; and something that must be read.
