Learning outcomes

This course is held in English and aims at providing Students with advanced notions of English Literature concerning the critical methodologies used by the various critical schools to interpret the literary text. The course will foster Students to develop an autonomous and original critical stance.
Learning outcomes are the development of:
- the capacity to read and interpret literary texts demon-strating coherence in the expressive and argumentative structure of one's ideas and concepts;
- the capacity to comment on the chosen texts so as to demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and critical debate these have generated,
- the autonomous capacity of personal critical thinking, by providing a personal and original elaboration of the themes under discussion.

Program

“Between History and Myth from Shakespeare to Joyce: Critical Approaches and Case Studies”
The module will discuss the relation between history and myth in a few canonical examples of English literature. It will locate the recent revival of source and textual studies within a broader panorama of critical approaches characterised by Poststructuralismt studies, Cultural studies, and New Historicism. The discussion will begin with the analysis of 'canonical' texts of various literary genres, from the Renaissance to the Nineteenth century and the early Twentieth century. It will foster critical readings of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in relation to its ancient sources (Plutarch and Appian), ad then will move on to an analysis of individual poems by Robert Browning and T.S. Eliot, finally to conclude with an exploration of the topic of history as presented in the second episode of the Telemachiad in Joyce’s Ulysses.

TEACHING METHODS:
The module will be held in English. Attending students will take one self-assessment test at the end of the module. A written calendar of the topics that will be dealt with will be circulated in class at the beginning of the course.
Further teaching material, including a selection of the texts that will be discussed in class, will be available for download from the MOODLE repository.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
