Period

2 B dal Apr 12, 2023 al May 27, 2023.

Learning objectives

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.

Prerequisites and basic notions

A sufficient competence in English is advisable in order for students to comprehend primary texts and scholarly work in the discipline in English.

Program

Jane Eyre: Legacies and Afterlives
The module will offer a reading of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre and, through the critical lens of adaptation and appropriation, of two of the many 'responses' the novel had after its first publication in 1847 (Rhys and Tennant) as examples of a rich literary and cultural afterlife.
