Words Unbound draws on Milton Burke's thirty years of teaching experience to help educators bring Inferno alive for today's young reader. In a conversational, "colleague-to-colleague" style, Burke shares the interpretations, questions, and exercises he found effective in his high-school classroom, emphasizing group discussion to help students, no matter their religious or philosophical moorings, engage meaningfully with the notoriously difficult text.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Milton Burke is clearly a master teacher, knowledgeable about his subject matter, but also about what works in the classroom, and by what works, I mean not only what helps students learn Dante, but more importantly what reading Dante can help students learn about themselves and their world. . . . The focus is on Dante, but the takeaway, the approach, can be applied to the teaching of any subject."

--From the foreword by Bill Stephany, professor emeritus of English, University of Vermont


"Milton Burke's Words Unbound makes the valuable contribution of providing a single reference manual for teachers interested in incorporating Dante's poem into their high school literature courses."

--Elizabeth Coggeshall, Florida State University
