This paper explores how Dante expresses his concept of utopia in his Divine Comedy which is mainly concerned with community and imagination; here community can be understood as a secular realization of harmonious relations which are social and cultural, and imagination offers a field in which we can move toward the community. Imagination operates the literary process so as to make a community open to its own ceaseless re-construction which allows itself to maintain anti-totalitarian inclination. This is the framework of utopia that Dante might have conceptualized in his Comedy. Once understood his concept of utopia as such, we can postulate that Dante`s utopia should show the process to approach the ideal community rather than the firm result of it. This point requires us to consider the Comedy, particularly the Purgatory, as a world of imagination. The Purgatory, in comparison with the Inferno and the Paradiso, is a space in process; in other words, it shows the way of constituting a community by relating this world to that world. In this incessant process, salvation is no longer an act to be achieved in that world but to be pursued in this world first with the secular endeavors by the mortal humans. In this sense I hold that Dante`s utopia is made possible with the so-called literary salvation. Literary salvation means to ask incessantly and endlessly the implications of salvation itself. It is possible to say that if literary salvation by Dante promotes the constitution of community, it is only an aspect of literary process of play that his Comedy operates in association with the readers` interpretive participations; the openness of a community is always confirmed in the literary process promoted by the readers` imaginations. Here the openness of a community is again linked to the reciprocality, not unilaterality, of salvation in which the subject of salvation and its object are no longer separated but altogether constitute a circular process; this is Dante`s concept of utopia as an instruction for salvation and community.
