What this podcast is *not*: a rule guide on proper punctuation. We'll only conjure the ghost of grammar in order to put it to rest. What this podcast *is*: a journey through the weird behaviour of punctuation in the wild. Be prepared to amble on the placid path of the comma, get lost on the winding road of brackets, and arrive at the well-deserved rest of the full stop. Along the way, we'll explore the past & future of punctuation, why a comma sparked the Russian Revolution, how to earn mill ...

We've come to the river of blood in the seventh circle of INFERNO, the first ring of the violent--and we don't meet any sinners. Instead, we meet the tormentors: the centaurs who fire cruel arrows at those sunk in the boiling muck. This passage has some problems in it, but none more than the opening three lines, a direct address from the poet. Why …

In this passage from INFERNO, Virgil offers us (and the pilgrim, Dante) more of a glimpse into his last trek to the bottom of hell. Here, he tells us that things have changed, that hell now lies in ruins, that the harrowing caused havoc across hell--and he descends into a little heresy along the way, quoting Empedocles, a pre-Socratic Greek philoso…

Virgil has finished his lesson on the geography of hell, he's answered the pilgrim's two questions, and we're back to the start of Canto XI, only at the start of Canto XII. Here, Dante, our pilgrim, confronts a dangerous rockslide that leads us straight past the Minotaur, the "infamy of Crete." Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as I look over so many quest…

Even at this point, at the end of INFERNO's Canto XI, we've come a long with Dante-the-pilgrim. We've walked down six circles of hell. We've also encountered lots of problems in the text, moments that need explanation, lots of interpretive knots. But I want to call our attention to the criticism of an Italian scholar who essentially says that at th…
 
Full transparency, one of our biggest pet peeves is when people hear the “career” part of “life & career coaches” and assume we help people scour job boards and edit their résumés. There’s nothing wrong with that—it’s just not what we do. If you’ve found us, you may very well want a new job. You might find yourself pursuing job boards and staring a…
 
Having asked one question and gotten smacked down, our pilgrim, Dante, dares to ask Virgil a second question. And this one's much harder. So much so that even Virgil seems hesitant in his reply. Why is usury punished so far down in hell, even below the murderers? And why is usury punished among the violent? The answer, which involves Artistotle and…

Most of INFERNO Canto XI is taken up with Virgil's description of the road ahead, his "mappa-inferno," as it were. The old poet claims he's laid it all out with "clear reasoning." But maybe not, because our pilgrim has a couple of questions for his guide. Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as we explore the first of these questions, really one about geograp…

So … I was in a therapy session and my therapist said something that filled me with, as I told Kristen during this episode, “The wrath of hell.” Why? Because she, unintentionally, broke one of the cardinal rules of anyone who’s in a therapy/coaching/healing profession: Make the person in front of you feel seen and heard. I brought her my very raw, …
 
We've clearly left the seven deadly sins behind. We got through lust, gluttony, avarice, and wrath--and then dumped sloth, envy, and pride in favor of heresy, violence, and two types of fraud. Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as we explore the last of Virgil's lesson in Canto XI of INFERNO, outlining the map of hell. At the bottom of the pit, at the very …

One of the hardest lessons I have to learn over and over again is that you will never be done. Ugh. It would just be WAY more convenient if life was arranged into predictable milestones that I could work toward at a reasonable pace and achieve with stunning regularity, thank-you-very-much!! And I also love control! When getting what I want depends …
 
Settled under the tomb of a heretic pope, Dante-the-pilgrim hears Virgil's first take on the nature of lowest hell: malice, injury, the heart of evil itself, all bound up in force and fraud.

Dante, our pilgrim, leaves Farinata's tomb almost unwillingly--at least, he has to force himself back to Virgil and continue his journey. Something about the encounter with the heretics in the sixth circle of hell is so profound, it stops the forward momentum of COMEDY for a bit. But there's more ahead, including the tomb of a heretic pope and the …

The answers to these important questions--why is Farinata in the sixth circle of hell and why is he damned at all?--may lie in the structure of Canto X of INFERNO. And it also may lie in the nature of the self as Dante understands it. Join me, Mark Scarbrough, in this interpolated episode of the podcast WALKING WITH DANTE. I'll step back from the w…

We finish up our time with Farinata with a discussion that gets stranger by the minute. There's definitely a camaraderie between our pilgrim and this Ghibelline warrior. The grander question? Is there a camaraderie between our poet and Farinata? There are many strange things in this passage toward the back of Canto X in INFERNO. 1) Farinata's discu…
