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

“Lyric and Performance: Shakespeare’s Sonnets Between Page and Stage”.

The module will analyse a selection of Shakespeare’s sonnets in the context of Elizabethan sonneteering, moving from the Petrarchan translations of Wyatt and Surrey to the compositions of Sir Philip Sidney and Edmund Spenser. It will examine early printed editions and will discuss issues of subtextuality and intertextuality, focusing in particular on the performative potential of Shakespeare’s sonnets. To this end, they will be compared with some of the sonnets present in his plays from the standpoint of the page-stage relation. The analysis will be framed by a theoretical reflection on critical methodology aimed at introducing students to a range of problems of critical approaches and textual interpretation.

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!


Stage e tirocini

Le attività di stage sono finalizzate a far acquisire allo studente una conoscenza diretta in settori di particolare interesse per l’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro e per l’acquisizione di abilità professionali specifiche.
Le attività di stage sono svolte sotto la diretta responsabilità di un singolo docente presso studi professionali, enti della pubblica amministrazione, aziende accreditate dall’Ateneo veronese.
I crediti maturati in seguito ad attività di stage saranno attribuiti secondo quanto disposto nel dettaglio dal “Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari” vigente.
Tutte le informazioni in merito agli stage sono reperibili al link https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.
