heh - good answer! Funnily enough I have been informed that there is a stonking new game due out based on Divine Comedy. When questioned my initial reaction was 'read it' but within the same breath I said 'no, don't read it' as that would have meant a deflation of anticipatory excitement. Accessability, sometimes, is what it's all about.

How's your italian? This is Roberto Benigni's version of Inferno V (Paola and Francesco)

Better for reading than for spoken, unfortunately, but I will definitely give it a listen! Thanks!

Ha, I've met and heard Carson read on numerous occasions, and that sounds exactly what he would say in response to snooty scholar. Brilliant anecdote, thanks for sharing it.

You're welcome! I'm glad you've had the chance to meet him, he was a great speaker.
