Learning outcomes

The module aims at offering an overview of late-nineteenth to twentieth-century English drama, as well as at presenting the students with the basics of textual analysis. On successful completion of the module, students will achieve a good knowledge of the cultural context in which the texts included in the programme were composed. They will be able to develop a coherent and detailed interpretation of the texts, apply key methods and concepts relevant to textual analysis, and provide a plausible critical interpretation in a register and style that serve the context and intention.

Program

Theatre and communication: words and silence on the late twentieth-century British stage
The module will deal with a selection of late twentieth-century dramatic texts in order to offer an overview of British theatre after the World War II with special regard to how the problem of communication is introduced and acted on the stage. Starting from John Osborne’s ‘Theatre of Anger’, herald of an improbable as well as ‘shouted’ emancipation, the module will explore Arnold Wesker’s social drama, whose characters fight against apathy and communicative deficiency, Samuel Beckett’s theatre and of absurd, rooted in dynamics of alienation and communicative closure, and Harold Pinter’s dramaturgy that deliberately abandons rational constructs and refuses the logical and consequential function of language leading to the failure of communication itself.

Examination Methods

Typology: oral exam. There will be no mid-term tests.
The exam will consist in an oral discussion (in Italian) that will test the knowledge of the module’s topics (texts and authors). Students will be required to analyse and critically evaluate the primary texts also by contextualizing them in their historical, dramatic, and cultural background. Assessment will consider: 1. the knowledge and comprehension of dramatic texts, 2. the development of good analytical and synthetic skill levels with regard to the main historical, cultural, textual, and critical topics of the module, 3. the use of an appropriate vocabulary.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE
