Bringing Dante to Life


Monday 13 December 6pm. 

Bringing Dante to Life by Keith Jewitt

A Lit & Phil lecture via Zoom


From Botticelli to Blake, from Doré to Dalì, for the last 700 years, artists have found the very concrete and often graphic imagery of Dante’s work a great source of inspiration. In this online talk, Keith Jewitt will give a brief survey of Dante illustration with occasional glances at sculpture and other ways of bringing Dante to life.

The Dante exhibition opens on the 2nd December in the Lit and Phil library and will be displayed within the main library until 23rd December.

Our thanks to Helena Biosciences for their overall sponsorship of the celebration and to The British Italian Society for their grant support.
