Learning outcomes

Il corso si propone di introdurre lo studente allo studio della letteratura italiana moderna e contemporanea, con particolare attenzione all'esperienza di letterati che, nel corso del Novecento, si sono impegnati in campo giornalistico o editoriale. Attraverso lo studio di una realtà esemplare, lo studente, alla fine del corso, dovrà dimostrare di conoscere i rapporti che legano letteratura, editoria e giornalismo, nonché essere in grado di leggere e analizzare testi di varia natura, situandoli criticamente nella storia della letteratura italiana.


Of Cesare Pavese, three different aspects will be studied.
The first, the poet's role in breaking with tradition, through the collection «Lavorare stanca» (1936-1943).
The second, intense relationship with Einaudi Publishing House that saw him as editor, editorial director, necklace director, voice in the choir of «Wednesday», publisher of himself, as well as author and translator and curator in his own also in the history of Italian publishing.
The third, narrator experience in the 1930s and 1940s with the publication of «Prima che il gallo canti» («Il carcere», 1938-1939 and «La casa in collina», 1947-1948), attempted reconciliation between myth and history.

Attending students, in addition to the lessons learned, are required to study the following works:
