Reflections on Reading Dante’s Divine Comedy via Tea, Toast and Trivia

I recently wrote about my reading of Dante’s The Divine Comedy as part of Nick Senger’s readalong. My dear friend Becky very kindly invited me to talk further about this adventure on her marvellous podcast Tea, Toast and Trivia.

It is always a huge pleasure to be part of Becky’s brilliant podcast conversations and I really enjoyed this opportunity to look back on my experience of reading one of the world’s great masterpieces of literature.

You can listen to the podcast here, by visiting the Tea, Toast and Trivia webpage, or via all the usual podcast platforms. I hope you enjoy it. And please also check out the other fabulous episodes. Becky has an amazing talent for finding wonderful people with whom to have fascinating conversations. 😀

  1. Many thanks for joining me on TTT to discuss Dante’s The Divine Comedy from a historical perspective as well as how this narrative resonates with our current reality. There are so many universal themes! “Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.” Looking forward to our next conversation!

  2. I will be listening to this later this evening, I hope, Liz and Becky. Interestingly, ( to me anyway! ) I am currently reading a book that refers to Dante’s Divine Comedy – Mark Mills’ ‘The Savage Garden’.
