Syllabus
Prerequisites: In order to take the exam, students must have already passed English Literature I

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: - detecting the major literary, linguistic and cultural topics and techniques in a literary text and describing them
- acquiring a higher literary, cultural competence as a means of comprehending English literary texts and describing them

At the end of the course, thanks to the detailed textual analysis that will have been performed during the classes, the student will have developed a more general method of literary analysis, with an emphasis on poetry.

Other concomitant skills will include a more nuanced appreciation of the stylistic technicalities of literary English and a heightened level of literary and cultural prowess in topics related to linguistic mediation

IMPORTANT WARNING: Of course, since the classes will be held in English, reaching these aims depends not only on continuous attendance, proper and respectful behaviour in class and thorough individual study, but also, if not crucially, on prior acquisition of the expected entrance level.
Examination methods: During the course I will very often effect an oral assessment of your learning progress by ways of questions in English.

On 6/3/2013 the Senato Accademico decreed that the final exams of all the courses that are taught in English MUST also be in ENGLISH.

The final exam is a written analysis in English to be made in class, which will deal with the texts of the syllabus. Students will have to answer open questions of reading comprehension on the primary and secondary texts and then write a short essay. Further explanations on the assessment criteria will be posted by the end of the course on Moodle.

Students may take the written exam only during the official exam sessions throughout the academic year. The template of the exam questions will remain unchanged, except, of course, the passages to be analysed (cf. Regolamento Didattico, art. 4.3).
The validity of English literature programmes lasts ONE YEAR.

“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
Classroom activities (Q&A)
Written exam at end of course (in English)
In the written exam students will have to answer a series of questions in which they will analyse and compare passages drawn from the syllabus (primary and secondary texts - see previous section).
Course unit contents: The course will teach the rudiments of the textual, rhetorical and stylistical analysis of English poetry, also in relation with the historical and cultural contexts of English poetry from the 16th to the 20th century.
The main theme will be the expression and representation of emotions in poetry, which will be thoroughly examined by way of a detailed analysis of the syllabus.

The primary texts will include:

T.S. Eliot, _The Waste Land_
Coleridge, _The Rime of the Ancient Mariner_
A. Pope, _The Rape of the Lock_
J. Milton, _Paradise Lost_ (Book 9)

Additional notes about suggested reading: 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.

The programme, which is valid for BOTH attending and non attending students, includes BOTH of the following sections:

1) PRIMARY TEXTS
T.S. Eliot, _The Waste Land_; Coleridge, _The Rime of the Ancient Mariner_; A. Pope, _The Rape of the Lock_; J. Milton, _Paradise Lost_ (Book 9); W. Shakespeare, _Sonnets_ (selection)
