Syllabus
Prerequisites: No previous knowledge needed. During lessons all material will be read in Spanish (that is, in its original version) and contextually translated. Students are allowed to choose according to their skills whether they prefer the original text or a translation into Italian (or English, this applying for foreign students). All editions are equally acceptable, provided that they feature all proper bibliographic information (publishing house, year and place of edition).
Target skills and knowledge: The aim of the course is to transmit a deep insight about the historical and literary evolution of Spain in the XIX Century, as well as an iterpretative tool which is meant to be useful in order to approach the primary literature inserted in the bibliography. The main onjective is the acquisition of a well-established capability of authonomous analysis of the texts seen, and beyond.
Examination methods: Oral exam in Italian, or other language (English or Spanish) established with the professor BEFORE taking the exam. During the exam full reading and comprehension of the text will be assessed, as well as the students' authonomous ability to analyse and connect the primary bibliography of the course.
Assessment criteria: Students will be assessed mainly on the syllabus of the course (primary texts, contextualization of each in its historical and literary period), with a particoular interest towards the elaboration of intertextual connections and the capability of establishing links between the subjects given during the course.
Non-attending students (that is, students attending less than 70% of the total amount of hours) are strongly recommended NOT TO BORROW other students' notes, as their exams is specifically conceived as a different set of questions.
ALL STUDENTS please note that, unless differently indicated by the professor, all texts are to be read INTEGRALLY and never in reduced or simplified editions.
Course unit contents: The course delves into the multiple historical, cultural and literary evolutions of the Spanish XIXth Century, as recorded and expressed in poetry, theatre and novel. During classes the following subjects will be the main focus:
_ XIXth century Spanish literature: Romanticism and Realism;
- La Generación del ’98 and literary Modernism
- 'De-humanizing' theory and practice: Ortega y Gasset and Vanguard literature;
_ García Lorca as a poet and playwright;
_ Francoist Spain as seen from within and outside;
- Ultracontemporary literature in the XXIth century: (im)possible post-novels
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Seminars (students are welcome to intervene). In order to be able to fully partecipate to the lessons, students are strongly adviced to read the theatrical texts BEFORE they are commented in class (more precise directions will of course be given during the course). At the same time, regular consultation of the Moodle page of the course is recommended, as further material or readings will be uploaded there.
