Learning outcomes

This course aims at providing students with a basic knowledge of the literature of United States in its complexity and plurality. Focus will be on specific texts, movements and literary tendencies.

By the end of this course, students will be able to recognize specific and often conflictual forms of writing. These are in fact generated within the context of different ethnic realities and traditions, and even though they are labeled as American Literature because of geographic reasons, they have totally different goals and forms of expression. Furthermore students will be able to approach texts with adequate critical tools, and will be familiar with specific features of American English.
