Period

1 A, 1 B

Learning objectives

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.

Prerequisites and basic notions

The English Literature for Publishing (LM-19) exam can only be taken if you hold a B2-level English language certification.

Program

"Print and Digital Practices and Multimedia Remediations: the Case of Romeo and Juliet."

This course introduces students to the printing practices of the English Renaissance and the editorial choices made in the contemporary publishing sector in view of today’s diverse audiences, including both print and digital solutions. It also focuses on some examples of remediation of Renaissance works over the centuries, from novellas to drama, musicals and films. William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1599), a celebrated exemplification of a myth of love and death, will offer a case study which will be analyzed in relation to its English narrative sources, Arthur Brooke's 1562 poem and William Painter's 1567 novella dedicated to this story. A number of subsequent famous rewrites over the centuries will also be presented, ranging from a manga version to other famous multimedia adaptations: from West Side Story (1961), and its 2021 Spielberg remake, to Baz Luhrmann's postmodern Romeo + Juliet (1996).

Attending and non-attending students alike are required to do all the readings indicated below.

Further teaching material will be available for download from the MOODLE repository.
