Join Wendy Walsh in reading and studying Paradiso, the luminous—and dense—third cantica of Dante’s Divine Comedy. The pilgrim Dante accompanied by Beatrice (until Canto XXXI) travels through the different spheres of planets and stars to the highest and outermost circle of the heavens, the Empyrean, where he will be granted the Beatific Vision.

Wendy Walsh has a PhD in Italian Literature from UC Berkeley. She has been teaching Italian language and literature since 1979.
