Period

I semestre dal Oct 1, 2018 al Jan 12, 2019.

Learning outcomes

The module, taught in English, is meant to guide the students through a critical approach to the English Literature of the period going from the Restoration to late Romanticism, especially in relation to a representative range of texts of the canon. Besides, it aims at getting the students familiar with fundamental tools necessary for text analysis and genre criticism. Its overall gaol is to provide the students with a good knowledge of the British literature of the set literary period (its historical context, its texts, genres, movements/authors) and of helping them develop skills for analysis, argumentation and exposition in English, in relation to various typologies of literary texts in their historical-cultural context.

At the end of the module, students will be able to:
-analyze the literary texts set in the syllabus in their historical-cultural contexts;
-argumentatively discuss them by taking into account literary conventions and by applying an informed critical approach that is aware of the literary nature of the text;
-demonstrate the acquired knowledge and skills, in English and in a clear and consistent way.

Program

MILTON'S SATAN'S HEIRS
The aim of the module is to provide the students with the opportunity to be guided into a critical study -aware of literary language and of contextual implications- of the the impact that Milton's epic and his characterization of Satan in Paradise Lost had on both the Restoration theatre - thorugh the figure of the rake in comedy and tragedy - , and Romantic literature and culture, when the poet of the Sublime and the prophet of revolution could be appropriated from various, different positions. Crucially, the student will analyze the deep and pervasive presence of Milton's Satanic epic in Mary Shelley's novel, where, by having it interact with the classic myth of Prometheus (the other powerful cultural icon of Romanticism), she has founded the modern myth of Frankenstein.
