L-LIN/13 - GERMAN LITERATURE
II semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Feb 14, 2022 al May 28, 2022.
The course offers an introduction to the main historical, artistic and literary fea-tures of 20th century German literature, focusing on the works of the most repre-sentative authors of this period. At the end students will have to show a deep knowledge of the topics dealt with during the course, regarding both the his-torical-literary period and the works. Fur-thermore they will have to be able to ana-lyse the texts and clearly show the abilities developed during the course through a suitable competence in German.
As this course is assigned to the students of DH we will focus on the authors and critical theories fostering the link between science and literature, reality and virtuality and quantitative and qualitative methods.
The course is meant to deeply examine the major trends of the twentieth-century German Literature (Naturalismus, Symbolismus, Ästhetizismus, Expressionismus, Neue Sachlichkeit, BRD-Literatur, DDR-Literatur, Post-Wende-Literatur, Kanakliteratur), whose aesthetical features and most significant authors will be both accurately described. Biographical informations about the authors, historical and political contexts, artistic and literary querelles, editorial and publishing aspects will also be provided throughout the analysis of single works and lyrics. The course will be divided into three sections: Fin de Siécle / Early 1900 (1890-1919) and Weimar Republic / End of World War II (1919-1945); “Other” German Language Literatures Austrian Literature, Habsburg Bohemia and Swiss Literature; German and Austrian Literature after 1945 until the post Fall of the Wall (1945-2010 ca.). The bibliography will deal with the three main literary genres – poetry, prose and drama – and will proceed according with the diachronic examination of the German Literary History.
