Period

Semester 1  dal Oct 2, 2017 al Jan 20, 2018.

Learning outcomes

The module aims at introducing the students to nineteenth- and twentieth-century English Literature, and at the same time providing basic instruments for a critical approach to texts and genres. The module will develop abilities of textual reading and analysis of different textual types, with a focus on modern and contemporary works within their historical and cultural contexts. It will also introduce students to critical approaches aimed at strengthening their analytical and argumentative skills. On successful completion of the module, students will be able to re-elaborate critically the acquired knowledge and to discuss topics employing appropriate linguistic and stylistic registers.

Program

“The experience of evil in English Literature at the turn of the nineteenth century and beyond.”
The module concentrates on the topic of evil in some canonic texts of English literature between the end of the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century. It focuses on the genres of the novel, of the short story, and, with regard to poetry, of the dramatic monologue. After offering an overview of chosen classic texts of the Victorian age devoted to this subject, from the Brontë sisters’ narratives to Stevenson’s and Wilde’s, as well as to the detective novel and Browning’s dramatic monologues, the module will then explore the protomodernist experimentation of Joseph Conrad, Virginia Woolf’s modernist narrative, and T.S Eliot’s early poetry. The discussion will extend to Francis Ford Coppola’s cinematic re-reading of Conrad’s narrative in the 1970s. These issues will be located within the literary period spanning the Victorian age and the entire twentieth century.

TEACHING METHODS:
The module will be held in English. Attending students will take three self-assessment tests during the module. A written calendar of the topics that will be dealt with will be circulated in class at the beginning of the course.
Further teaching material will be available for download from the MOODLE repository.
