L-LIN/10 - ENGLISH LITERATURE

Period

I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 30, 2019 al Jan 11, 2020.

Learning outcomes

The course is meant to introduce students to postcolonial literature in English by reading and analysing representative critical works and literary texts. Upon the completion of this course, students will be able to:
- read postcolonial literary texts closely, with focused attention to language, content, and form, and analyze the relationship between literary texts and the particular historical, social, and cultural contexts that produced them;
- demonstrate independent critical thinking in their analysis of literary texts
- demonstrate an ability to structure ideas and arguments in a logical, sustained, and persuasive way, and to support them with precise and relevant examples.

Program

The 'heart' of the Empire interrogated by its subversive marginalities

After some classes devoted to introducing postcolonial anglophone literature, the students will be engaged in tackling the theme of the interrogation/contestation of the authority and alleged 'purity' of the imperial centre, entailing the problematization of the concepts of Enlgishness, belonging, identity. This will be done through a study of texts, set in postcolonial London, by the New Zealand author Janet Frame and by the black British fiction/screen-writer Hanif Kureishi.

A) TEXTS
-Janet Frame, The Edge of the Alphabet (1962)
-Hanif Kureishi, My Beautiful Launderette and "The Rainbow Sign" (1986)
-My Beautiful Launderette, film (1985) directed by Stephen Frears
-Hanif Kureishi, "We're not Jews", "My son the fanatic",from Love in a Blue Time (1997, Faber and Faber)

B) CRITICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY
-J. Mc Leod, Beginning Postcolonialism, Manchester UP, 2000, chapters 1 e 7.
- J.Mc Leod, Postcolonial London: Rewriting the Metropolis, Routledge, 2004: chapter 2 "London, England" pp.81-92.
-K.C. Kaleta, Hanif Kureishi, Postcolonial Storyteller, University of Texas Press, 1998, pp.39-61

NON-ATTENDING STUDENTS ARE ASKED TO INTEGRATE THE BIBLIOGRAPHY ABOVE WITH THE FOLLOWING:
-J. C. Ball, Imagining London: Postcolonial Fiction and the Transnational Metropolis, University of Toronto Press, 2006, pp-3-25.
