Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professors Peter Hainsworth and David Robey look at why Dante is such a vital point of reference for modern writers inside and outside Italy. They explain the meaning of the poet’s masterpiece, The Divine Comedy.  Hainsworth is professor emeritus at the University of Oxford and Robey is professor of Italian at Reading University. They are co-editors of the Oxford Companion to Italian Literature.
