Learning outcomes

This course is held in English and aims at providing Students with advanced notions of English Literature especially in relation to different critical methodologies and interpretations of the literary text. it also aims to develop an autonomous and original critical approach to literary texts. On successful completion of the course, students will be able to: - read and interpret literary texts by structuring ideas and concepts with argumentative skill and expressive mastery; - critically comment on the texts so as to demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical debate surrounding them, - develop critical and autonomous thinking by personally elaborating on debated issues.

Program

“Critical Approaches to Sources, Receptions, and Adaptations: Politics and Passion in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra”

The module will examine the notion of ‘source’ against the backdrop of reception and adaptation theories within the broader critical debate on textual and cultural studies. The discussion will develop around two exemplary case studies: Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra, with a focus on politics and passion in relation to Shakespeare’s historical sources (from Plutarch to Appian) and to different forms of reception, adaptation and imitation of those two plays. Examples will include a modern adaptation of Julius Caesar for the Italian stage in the 1930s, and John Dryden’s own version of the story of Antony and Cleopatra, All for Love: or the World Well Lost, “Written in Imitation of Shakespeare’s Style”.

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.

Examination Methods

Knowledge acquisition will be evaluated through an oral exam, which will consist in a discussion of the topics dealt with during the module. The oral exam will be held in English.

Alternatively, students may submit an essay in English of approximately 5,000 words at least a week before the exam. The essay will then be presented and discussed orally. For essay-writing guidelines please refer to the material present in Moodle as well as to the following text: Richard Marggraf Turley, Writing Essays, London and New York, Routledge, 2016 (2nd edition). Before submitting their essays, students are required to discuss their project with the teacher.

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!
