Option A: In the selection from Dante’s Inferno, we read about Dante’s tour through Hell, where whirling winds torment the souls of those who have sinned in love. Dante envisions Hell as a pit within the earth where sinners are punished in the afterlife for their evil deeds. He designs his circles of Hell as a pit that circles downward with nine specific types of sinners. Your assignment is to design your own nine circles of Hell. Option B: Create your own nine circles of [something else], such as love, trust, respect, relationships, etc. Or, you can be a little more creative and create an alternate “Hell”. Two examples are a Hollywood Hell (fashion no-nos, love triangles, one-hit wonders, etc.) or a Sports Hell (throwing the game, steroid usage, red shirted, etc.). If you have another idea you would like to do, let me know so that I can approve it.
