In Society of the Spectacle, Thomas Zipp examines Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy” and Guy Debord’s “The Society of the Spectacle”. The two literary works offer different perspectives on society. Debord criticises modern society’s obsession with images and spectacle and argues that it alienates the individual. Dante, on the other hand, explores the soul’s journey through hell, purgatory and paradise, incorporating moral and theological dimensions. While Debord focuses on the dehumanising effect of the spectacle, Dante devotes himself to a broader exploration of morality and spirituality. Both works offer valuable insights into social and individual dynamics, but they approach these themes from different angles.
