L-LIN/10 - ENGLISH LITERATURE

Period

I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 28, 2020 al Jan 9, 2021.

Learning outcomes

The course, held in English, aims at introducing the students to English literature (from the Victorian to the contemporary period), with specific reference to a selection of canonical texts, and at presenting methodological approaches for the analysis of literary texts and genres. The course aims at providing a good knowledge of British literature (articulated in historical context, texts, genres, literary trends and authors) and the skills for a critical analysis and argumentation on different kinds of texts in their historical and cultural context.

At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Analyse the literary texts of the programme in their historical and cultural context;
- Apply an aware critical approach to literary texts and present an argumentation which shows knowledge of literary conventions;
- Express the acquired literary and critical competence in English clearly and coherently.

Program

The module will offer a critical reading of literary texts belonging to the literary period scheduled for the first-year students of the BA course in Foreign Languages and Literatures, by adopting as its fil rouge the BILDUNGSROMAN FROM LATE VICTORIANISM TO EARLY MODERNISM.
It will first provide the students with the necessary narratological tools of text analysis. Then they will be engaged in a close reading and study of the modes of genre remoulding (with reference to its themes, such as the generational and social tensions and the search for one's identity in the confrontation with authority, sexuality, politics, religion) that, starting from Thomas Hardy's late-Victorian/proto-Modernist experience will go through the fundamental, though diverse, modernist inflections given to it by D.H. Lawrence and E. M. Forster.
