I've written before about Paul Claudel's thoughts about Dante but haven't actually given any information about Dante's work directly. Thanks to a recommendation from Stratford Caldecott's 'Beauty in Education' blog, I can now put that right.
He recommends this wonderful site about the world of Dante, which contains the complete text of The Divine Comedy in both Italian and English. Where to fit it into the curriculum is tricky, of course, but it could come in handy if you're teaching or studying T.S. Eliot or John Milton (and there are still a few people who do).
