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.


In dialogue with the past: the Restoration, from John Dryden to the twentieth century.

The return of the monarchy in Britain in 1660 after a decade of republican regime inaugurated a period of ebullient, if contradictory, transformation. Marked by political, scientific, social as well as aesthetic changes and yet nostalgic for the past, the Restoration has become a fruitful ground for twentieth-century dramatic and literary production in a problematic and imaginative dialogue between history and fiction.

Examination Methods

Typology: oral exam in Italian. 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.
