Medieval Cities in Dante's Inferno

A 3 page essay that discusses the role of cities as settings in Dante's Inferno. In the notes that accompany the Hollander and Hollander translation of Dante's Inferno, these translators comment that the medieval city provides the "centering image of political life" for Dante's vision of Hell (Hollander and Hollander 56). As this indicates, Dante pictures Hell in terms that are synonymous with those of an earthly city, such as his native Florence. As this indicates, an examination of Dante's references to cities in the Inferno demonstrates how this setting aided Dante in accomplishing his literary goals. No additional sources cited.

On Civility

A 3 page commentary on Stephen L. Carter's essay "Barbarians Running Late."

Carter feels that the American preoccupation with individualism and a "me-first" mentality has been taken too far. Quite literally, barbarism stands ready at the gate to take over our culture unless we rally and reform by learning how to interact with each other in a manner that promotes civilized behavior.

Documentary on Latino Family in NYC

A 3 page essay that analyzes Nuyorican Dreams, a 1999 documentary directed by Laurie Collyer, which focuses on the family of Marta Torres, an immigrant from Puerto Rico who came to New York in search of the American Dream and a better life for herself and her family, but instead found an American "nightmare" (Bell-Russel, 2000). The term "Nuyorican," according to Torres refers to someone who is of Puerto Rican extraction but who knows nothing of their Puerto Rican heritage or culture. As such, the documentary pictures this population as a people adrift --stigmatized within the US by white mainstream culture, yet not able to fall back on a sense of belonging to Puerto Rican culture because these cultural values and perspectives have not been transmitted successfully to the next generation due to environmental influences. This situation has huge implications from a health perspective, and the documentary explores the drug-related problems of Torres' grown children. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
