Learning outcomes

The module aims at offering an overview of late-nineteenth to twentieth-century English drama, as well as at presenting the students with the basics of textual analysis. On successful completion of the module, students will achieve a good knowledge of the cultural context in which the texts included in the programme were composed. They will be able to develop a coherent and detailed interpretation of the texts, apply key methods and concepts relevant to textual analysis, and provide a plausible critical interpretation in a register and style that serve the context and intention.

Program

Variations on the Jew: Marlowe, Shakespeare, Wesker e Marowitz

Moving from a discussion of the notions of adaptation and appropriation, the module aims at investigating two late nineteenth-century rewritings of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice and Christopher Marlowe’s The Jew of Malta. The role and characterization of the Jew in the two Renaissance dramas will be analyzed in the light of its presence and function in Arnold Wesker’s and Charles Marowitz’s 1970s texts/responses, also taking into account Barabas’s and Shylock’s long reception history.

Please be advised
Language: lectures will be held in Italian; primary texts will be read in English.

FURTHER MATERIALS
Other teaching materials (slides, images, videos, etc.) that will be used in class will be available for download from the MOODLE e-repository. These contents do not substitute but complement the mandatory readings listed in the BIBLIOGRAPHY section above.

Examination Methods

Typology: oral exam. There will be no mid-term tests.
The exam will consist in an oral discussion (in Italian) that will test the knowledge of the module’s topics (texts and authors). Students will be required to analyze and critically evaluate the primary texts also by contextualizing them in their historical, dramatic, and cultural background. Assessment will consider: 1. the knowledge and comprehension of primary texts (see a. above), 2. the development of good analytical and synthetic skill levels with regard to the main historical, cultural, textual, and critical topics of the module, 3. the use of an appropriate vocabulary.
