Learning outcomes

The main learning outcome of the course is to provide students with a specialized and comparative knowledge of Spanish literature, of critical methodologies and textual analysis. Acquired competence and knowledge will be applied to interdisciplinary approaches, to the study of critical methodologies concerning textual reading, translation and the critical analysis of texts in Spanish, or to a high-level written production. Students will therefore acquire competences on the use of Spanish, both on the level of contents and on that of critical processes in intertextual and intercultural contexts. The aim is to prepare students for high-level professional outcomes or for further university developments, like PhD courses. Specific learning outcomes are as follows: Knowledge and understanding: at the end of the course students are expected to have acquired advanced knowledge on the history of Spanish literature and culture in its various expressions: forms, genres, and critical perspectives Applying knowledge and understanding: students will be able to apply historical and literary knowledge, as well as acquired theoretical, didactic and methodological instruments to the fields of professional research, teaching of languages and literatures, literary translation, international cooperation and cultural promotion.


Motives and narrative structures: theory and practice in the Spanish Renaissance novel

The course intends to develop the analysis of the sub-genre of the Spanish chivalric novel starting from an approach to the history and morphology of narrative forms (the motifs). We will start from a historical consideration on the role of the romance of chivalry in the in the forms of western novel and romance (Pavel, The Lives of the Novel; Mazzoni, Theory of the Novel) and from the centrality of adventure as a cardinal motive of very long duration. The excursus is about problems such as the structure of the plot, the role of suspense, the seriality of the sagas. In addition to the explicitly scheduled critical texts, mention will be made of a wider critical reference bibliography:

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!
