As a Context guide, I know these talks are not as easy to give as they might appear, and from that point of view I am very impressed with Dr Stasiowski's ability. She's a superb speaker; articulate, erudite, and yet relaxed. There were moments in this talk that utterly captivated and enthralled me, where I felt truly elevated in the way that Dante himself would have wanted.
Loved it. Strong educational background in Dante. Entertaining. I'm in the middle of reading Divine Comedy and could not have been more pleased with the reminders of its relevance, for all time.
Kristin's encyclopedic knowledge of all things Dante + ability to pull in relevant references from a multitude of areas of culture/history made this talk informative and fun! She is a fantastic teacher and left me feeling inspired and seeing Dante all around me in my everyday life.
Thoroughly enjoyed the lecture. It was extremely well done and interesting. Helped to put Dante in Perspective.
Dr. Stasiowski covered an extraordinary amount of material in 90 minutes with clarity, intelligence and humor
