107. ITAL 041/041W: Masterpieces of Italian Literature in Translation

Contact:Hermann W. Haller
Abstract:The course will focus on the study of outstanding works of Italian literature
in Translation selected from the origins in the XIIIth through the XXIst
century. Each time the course is offered it will focus on a specific topic,
literary period, or genre. Students will study literary masterpieces against
their historical, political, and cultural backdrops and thus develop an
understanding of Italy’s rich web of cultural identities, as well as a greater
awareness of how intellectual and artistic traditions of Western civilization
permeate thought in our contemporary society and culture. Students will learn
how to approach a text, how to read it from different perspectives, and how to
view it within different critical frameworks. They will learn how to
interrogate texts, and how to interact with them. The close study of literary
texts will also lead to a greater ability to understanding and appreciating
written language. The course may be taught as a Writing Intensive (W) course.
It is repeatable for credit as the topic will change each semester.
