Dante’s Divine Comedy of 1300s Italy and present day Australia have much in common: a divisive political world, greed and personal corruption, but also souls lost in a dark wood. Using Dante’s epic poem as a prompt, some of our most distinguished poets and writers present especially commissioned works to show us how Purgatorio pulses through our lives.

Come and hear Chris Wallace-Crabbe, Maria Tumarkin, Samuel Wagan Watson, John Clarke, Margo Lanagan, Emily Ballou, Jennifer Maiden and Sunil Badami mark a path through good and evil, corruption and virtue.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
