    OVERVIEW

    The course, divided into two sections (one for students who must obtain 6 credits), focuses on main movements and authors of particular relevance of the Italian literary panorama of 18th-20th century.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Analyse authors, texts, genres of Italian literature in relation to the historical context in which they originate and in relation to the tools of philological and interpretative text analysis. 

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to enhance knowledge along some fundamental directrixes in the context of Italian literature: text tradition, philology, the precise use of bibliographical sources, interpretative exegesis and critical-historiographical reconstruction. At the end of the course students should be able to independently use the analytical knowledge acquired.

    Knowledge and understanding:

    Through lectures, guided analysis, and class discussions students will improve their knowledge of the most important methods in textual analysis of a literary text and will achieve the full ability to understand critical texts related to the literary work considered.

    Applying knowledge and understanding:

    Through independent perusal of literary texts and translations, the student is able to apply the previously achieved analytical skills, so to identify both structural aspects of the analyzed text, and the relationship between the text and the cultural and historical context in which it was produced.

    Making autonomous judgments:

    Through an oral presentation the student is able to understand, critically discuss and explain the specific literary characteristic of the text.

    Communication skills:

    The final oral discussion improves the ability to present analysis results in an efficient and synthetic way; they also allow students to express the concepts learned, with an appropriate language, and to hold a discussion on the topics dealt with in class.

    Learning skills: The described activities allow students to acquire the methodological tools necessary to continue their studies and to address, at the end of the course, the inclusion in the world of scientific research and in the labour market.
