Heather Fineisen Rewarding?


message 2: by Sue (new)

Sue Very interesting. This is one of those books that I've always intended to read so doing it with a group is excellent.I'm definitely getting more out of it. The art and other links that people are posting....Excellent.

So I guess rewarding would be accurate.

Sylvia Purgatory and Paradiso are much different from Inferno, and so is Dante wayfarer.
I'm reading Inferno following a university college on the subject. Quite interest with unexpected points of view.

Sue Yes Sylvia. I'm enjoying the more lyrical aspects of the Purgatorio and Dante really is a different creature here.

Kalliope Unforgettable the reading of this major work.. much more complex than I had thought...

I agree. I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this. Teresa was correct; the end of Paradiso is beautiful. Thanks for the like, Kalliope.

Yes, it's a good thing that we all joined this group and had the opportunity to read Dante together. We were a small group, but we made it through Paradiso. I initially thought that it would be a very difficult read, but it ended up being absolutely fascinating! Good for you for writing a review Sue. I don't think I will write one.I look forward to our next read together!

Diane Barnes Congratulations on tackling this one and finishing it. It must be very rewarding to get this one in your "read" column.

Yes it is Diane. After all these years, I can now say I've read Dante! The group definitely made it possible by giving me such a workable schedule to use. I plan to tackle Boccaccio's Decameron the same way starting in a couple of weeks.

Diane Barnes I have read The Decameron and really enjoyed it. It's a very accessible read, and at times very raunchy. Not that that's why I liked it!

(tee hee) of course not!
I'm looking forward to it. I'm assuming it will be a bit more "approachable" than the Divine Comedy".
