I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 26, 2022 al Dec 23, 2022.

Learning objectives

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.

Prerequisites and basic notions

The English Literature 3 (L-11 ED) exam can only be taken after having passed the second year’s exams of English Language and Literature.


“Tragedy and Epyllion in the English Renaissance: From the Printed Edition to the Digital”
The course provides students with an introduction to English Renaissance literature, with a special emphasis on the printing practices of the time and the issues related to the editing choices one makes for a modern readership, from printing the texts to a digital reproduction. In particular, students will be introduced to a number of works by Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare, exemplifying the tragic genre and the epyllion of the 1590s. The course consists of three modules devoted to: an overview of English Renaissance literature and an introduction to the study of Christopher Marlowe’s The Massacre at Paris (1593) (MODULE 1); an introduction to the study of the materiality of the book in the sixteenth century, esp. considering two narrative poems – Christopher Marlowe’s Hero and Leander (posthumously printed in 1598) and William Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis (1593) (MODULE 2); an introduction to the study of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (1599): from the printed edition to the digital one (MODULE 3).
Attending and non-attending students alike are required to do all the readings indicated below:
All texts in the syllabus are compulsory.
