First half of Semester 1  dal Sep 25, 2017 al Nov 11, 2017.

Learning outcomes

The module aims at introducing the students to nineteenth- and twentieth-century English Literature with a focus upon a few canonical texts and within the context of coeval continental literature. At the same time, it wishes to provide appropriate instruments for a critical approach to texts and genres. The module will develop abilities of textual reading and analysis of modern and contemporary narrative works within their historical and cultural contexts. It will also introduce students to critical approaches aimed at strengthening their analytical and argumentative skills. On successful completion of the module, students will be able to re-elaborate critically the acquired knowledge, to comprehend texts in English and translate them into Italian, and to discuss topics employing appropriate linguistic and stylistic registers.


“The self and the ‘other’: the ‘double’ motif in nineteenth- and twentieth-century English literature.”
The course concentrates on the motif of the ‘double’ in nineteenth- and twentieth-century novels and short stories. After an introduction to canonical European narratives on this subject and to British late-nineteenth-century examples, such as Stevenson’s and Wilde’s, the module will come to explore Conrad’s protomodernist experimentation in a novel and two short stories. It will then investigate Virginia Woolf’s own modernist reinterpretation of the ‘double’ issue through an unprecedented focalization upon the characters’ own consciences.

The module will be held in Italian; primary texts will be read in English and translated into Italian. Attending students will take one self-assessment test at the end of the module. A written calendar of the topics that will be dealt with will be circulated in class at the beginning of the course.
Further teaching material will be available for download from the MOODLE repository.

Examination Methods

The exam will consist in an oral discussion of the topics dealt with during the module. The acquired abilities will be evaluated in terms of:

1) knowledge of the primary texts within their historical and cultural contexts and in relation to the literary tradition of ‘the double’;
2) ability to use critical approaches appropriate to textual and contextual analysis, with special attention to stylistic and narratological features;
3) textual comprehension and translation into Italian of the primary texts;
4) argumentative skills in an academic discussion in Italian.

The oral exam will be held in Italian and will evaluate the knowledge acquired with regard to parts (1) and (2) of the above-detailed syllabus.

Alternatively, attending students only may deliver an essay in English of approximately 5,000 words at least two weeks before the date of the oral exam. The essay should be on one or more topics of their own choice among those dealt with in class. Before writing the essay, students are invited to discuss their project with the teacher. This written part will be integrated with an oral discussion of the same topic on the day of the exam.
