1. First, carefully read Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (any version) and carefully read the excerpts from Dantes work posted here and on the next page, and while you are reading them, think about the questions I asked you in the LECTURE.
Dantes Inferno Excerpt.doc
For this week, you have read Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and a short selection from Dantes Inferno.
For the discussion this week please choose one of the following options: 1) Discuss the theme of good versus evil in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (any version of the story is acceptable) or 2) Discuss the following questions about the selection from Dantes Inferno. You may also respond to both options if you wish.
First, think about the term
contrapasso.
From the section I gave you, tell me why you think the punishments described are appropriate.
Also in the lecture, I stated that the punishments are
ironically
appropriate.
What do you think I mean by that? Feel free to look up Dantes
Inferno
online
to see what other punishments are found in Dantes Hell.
Next.
One of the things that Dantes Hell emphasizes is that the world we live in isnt fair, and that people commit all sorts of crimes and get away with them.
The Inferno
shows us that
all
people will eventually have to pay for their sins. Even if one doesnt believe in the Hell that Dante describes, I think everyone has a secret hope that all criminals will get what they deserve. In our modern world, we see this all the time in literature and Movies.
Describe a work of fiction or movie you have seen recently where the concept of
contrapasso
is in full effect.
(Example: on a recent
Game of Thrones
episode, an evil character met his end by being eaten alive by his own dogs, dogs he had previously used to kill his enemies.)
