Digital Dante

Thanks to Digital Dante, scholars of The Divine Comedy need not abandon all hope for their research. This rich and extensive multimedia project out of Columbia University began as the brainchild of Jennifer Hogan when she was a graduate student there in the early 1990s, and it was relaunched in 2014 after some years of dormancy. Digital Dante offers numerous avenues for exploring the poet's work, and Dante fans could easily spend many hours doing so. In addition to the full text of The Divine Comedy, in which every canto page is accompanied by illustrations from Columbia University's Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Digital Dante includes over 600 pages of dynamic commentary by editor and Dante scholar Teodolinda Barolini. Another feature is Intertextual Dante, a digital tool conceived by Julie Van Peteghem that aids readers in examining the intertextual references between Dante and Ovid, with plans to add more authors and texts to this tool in the future. The site also includes image and audio collections, video lectures, multiple English translations, and original historical and textual research.
