In today’s show originally broadcast on November 24 2021, Andy is joined by Jimmie Moglia, for a show entitled, “Honoring Dante During The 700th Year Of His Passing.”
We discussed: Jimmie’s “Your Daily Shakespeare” dictionary; how Dante is regarded as Italy’s Shakespeare; Dante’s criticism of the Catholic Church and in particular two of its Popes; why Dante never married; Jimmie’s dictionary of Dante which was published by the Government of Tuscany; why Dante left Florence; where Dante spent his final days; and many other topics.
Click here for Jimmie’s, “Your Daily Shakespeare,” website, where you can find references to his books, and in particular to his useful, unusual, and unique Shakespearean situational dictionary, entitled, “Your Daily Shakespeare – an Arsenal of Verbal Weapons to Drive your Friends into Action and your Enemies into Despair.” You can also contact him about his unique method of remembering quotations by sending him an email and receiving his individual memory-profile-related questionnaire. Jimmie produces a series of videos for a College in Portland as well as for two Oregon television channels. The series is called, “Historical Sketches.”
