Italian Literature: 1200-1860 (ITLN3691)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit deals with the literary cultures of Italy before it became a unified state. It analyses regional diversity while emphasising linguistic similarities. It addresses the paradox of a unique cultural and artistic civilization paralleled by a dramatically fragmented political system. Through analysis of influential texts and images in their historical context, students will gain a sound knowledge of major figures, works, and movements of one of the richest intellectual traditions in the world.
