L-LIN/10 - ENGLISH LITERATURE

Period

I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 27, 2021 al Jan 8, 2022.

Learning outcomes

The course, held in English, aims at introducing Students to the English Literature from the 16th century to the Restoration (1660), paying emphasis on some canonical literary texts. Besides, it will offer skills and abilities for the critical analysis of literary texts and their genres. The course objective is to provide a good knowledge of the literature of the period (historical context, texts, genres, literary movements and authors) and to develop in Students a capacity of analysis and argumentative abilities in relation to the various typologies of literary texts set in their literary, historical, and cultural context. At the end of the course, Student will be able to - analyse the examined literary texts setting them in their historical and cultural context; - discuss them in an argumentative way, with due consideration to contemporary literary conventions, and by applying a critical, knowledgeable, and aware approach to the specificity of the literary texts; - present the acquired competences in English, and in a coherent and clear way.

Program

EROS, POLITICS, AND POWER IN ENGLISH RENAISSANCE DRAMA

This module is centered on the period that, In England, ushers in early modernity: a period of radical upheavals - intellectual and material, religious and political - that mark the transition from the medieval to the modern. Theatre effectively embodies this intensely self-conscious, often violent and still engaging time, by addressing and interrogating all its major key-themes. This is brilliantly shown in the great tragic and problem plays of the Elizabethan and Jacobean period by Marlowe and Shakespeare selected for the course. These will be explored by focusing on the fil rouge of the agonistic relationship between the power of eros and the power of politics, that in its turn strongly involves a new, tragic approach to subjectivity, as well as an extraordinary tension between rhetoric and action, language and body.

The face-to-face classes, in English, will start from a contextual survey of the main themes and motifs realtive to the theme of the course, and will then focus on the scheduled primary texts. The students will be invited to participate, also through seminar-like moments of discussion and confrontation.
