Dan Brown, man of mystery

Dante specialist Dr. Sara Diaz, interim program director/coordinator of Italian language, Department of Modern Languages & Literatures, discussed Dante's Inferno and best-selling author Dan Brown on Sunday Night on Australian television. Detailing the creative punishments in Dante's text, she noted that the adulterous lovers are "...made to suffer being together for eternity." She added, "That which they desired most in life is their fate forevermore in death." The clip featured formed part of a larger conversation about Dante's enduring influence on contemporary art, music, cinema, literature, and even video games.
