Syllabus
Prerequisites: Familiarity with the historical and cultural coordinates of the Renaissance
Very good knowledge of literary English

IMPORTANT: Students must exclusively use the @studenti.unipd.it domain for all mails. This account will enable them to have access both to UNIWEB for registering themselves for exams and to MOODLE (by means of which all the information relevant to the course will be published). The University staff, including professors, is NOT legally compelled to answer mails coming from domains other than @studenti.unipd.it.
Target skills and knowledge: - developing skills in reading and analysing late 16th-17th century texts by resorting to a competent critical jargon and contextualising them in their wider historical-literary context.
- detecting linguistic and cultural topics related to the early modern literary text and explaining them in a complex, competent way.
- acquiring a higher literary, cultural competence as a means of comprehending English literary texts and describing them
Examination methods: During the course I will very often effect an oral assessment of your learning progress by ways of questions in English, whose outcome will influence the final mark.

The final exam is oral (in English) and will cover the course programme.

Texts must be read in English ONLY. Annotated editions ONLY (cfr. bibliography), ie. with notes and commentary. For their own good, students are warmly discouraged from downloading non-annotated texts from the Internet. They are deceivingly cheap, completely useless and tragically inadequate for the final exam. The usage of texts without notes and commentary will severely impair a fruitful attendance of classes and consequently one's chances to pass the final exam.

“Students must register themselves for exams [by way of UNIWEB] by fully respecting the EXPIRY DATES and MODALITIES set forth by the relevant didactic structures" (REGOLAMENTO DELLE CARRIERE DEGLI STUDENTI, Articolo 22, comma 1).

The so-called APPELLO STRAORDINARIO is strictly reserved for "students 'ripetenti' [who must repeat the year] ... under the condition that it hinder not the normal performance of didactic activities" (Calendario Accademico 2014/2015).
Assessment criteria: Frontal instruction
