Learning outcomes

The module aims at providing specific knowledge about the history of English publishing, compared to the Italian one, with regard to the production of complex texts, such as Renaissance play texts, in relation to the transmission of their printed sources, as well as their own later circulation and re-elaboration in diverse genres and according to different printing practices. The module will offer advanced tools for textual analysis and for the interpretation of literary and dramatic genres within their historical and cultural contexts and in relation to their editorial traditions. It will also introduce students to critical approaches aimed at strengthening their 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

“Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: Editions, Translations, and Adaptations Between England and Italy”
The module explores Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar as an exemplary case study of Renaissance editorial practices with regard to drama texts intersecting ancient narrative sources, but also offering possibilities for ever new adaptations and remediations. In particular, it examines the play’s first edition in relation to the late sixteenth-century publication of its historical sources – Plutarch and Appian especially. It then moves on to a discussion of the play’s Italian translations in the first half of the twentieth century, with a focus on textual adaptations.

TEACHING METHODS:
The module will be held in English. Attending students will have the opportunity to take a self-assessment test at the end of the module. A 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.
