Product Description

This resource allows students to use their critical thinking skills to determine how each of Dante's "punishments" in Inferno is crafted to be a perfect "poetic justice" of cosmic consequence. It lists each sin and the punishment for the sin and then provides a blank contrapasso structure for students to illustrate how the two are related. This is a great resource if you're reading all or part of Inferno. It is especially useful if you are just excerpting Inferno, but want students to see the bigger picture of the epic poem. Even if you haven't read Inferno with your class, but want students to use classic literature to develop their critical thinking skills, this is a worthwhile activity.
