Language

Period

I semestre (Lingue e letterature straniere) dal Sep 30, 2019 al Jan 11, 2020.

Learning outcomes

The main aim of the course is the detailed study of Italian literature through the close analysis of a group of literary texts, which have a meaningful role in the literary and cultural international context. At the end of the course the student will be able to: - analyse and consider a literary text as a complex form, in constant dialogue with other literatures and cultures, in particular in their translation and international circulation - show competency in the framework of Italian literature’s European and extra-European tradition

Program

The «Decameron» and its Renaissance European legacy.
The first part of the course will be devoted to Giovanni Boccaccio’s «Decameron», which will be analysed taking into account its topics, aims, structure, and language. The relations with other Boccaccio’s meaningful works from both a structural (the «Filocolo» and its “questioni d’amore”) and an ideological point of view (philogyny and misogyny from the «Elegia di madonna Fiammetta» to the «Corbaccio») will be thoroughly studied.
The second part of the course will deal with the reception of Boccaccio’s novellas in Renaissance Europe, considering in particular France and England. The analysis will focus on translations and rewritings of specific tales, but also on French and English examples of collections of novellas based on Italian models, such as Margherita of Navarra’s «Heptaméron», William Painter’s «The Palace of Pleasure», and George Whetstone’s «An Heptameron of Civil Discourses».
_________

TEACHING METHODS
Taught classes. Analysis and interpretation of meaningful novellas and their French and English rewritings and translations.
The e-learning platform will be used to provide students with further teaching material.

Weekly office hours will be arranged throughout the academic year (2019/2020), as shown on the professor’s web page.

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!
