The annual reading of selections from the Inferno brings listeners and participants into the "dark woods" of Dante's haunting vision. This dramatic literary event takes place in the Crossing of the Cathedral, with selected Cantos read by honored guests, distinguished poets, eminent translators, visiting scholars, and Inferno reading regulars.

This is our first reading in person since 2019. We are excited to bring back this beloved tradition and would love for you to join us.

Visit the American Poets Corner page for more information on annual poetry events at the Cathedral.
