Italian

The students are instructed to read, interpret and categorize various texts of Italian literature and to effect their own scientific analysis. The course is conceived as a preparation on literary proseminars and other courses of advanced literary studies.

The course includes the following contents:

- introduction to close reading of literary texts

- terminology and methodology of narrative, dramatic and lyrical text analyses

- text analysis and interpretation as a base discipline of literary studies

The described contents should be acquired by means of the students’ active participation, and each of them is to be practiced by concrete activities, namely a bibliography and three short literary essays.  

The activities mentioned below „methods“ which are to be accomplished by the students, form as well the basis for grading.

Gröne, Maximilian u.a.: Italienische Literaturwissenschaft: eine Einführung. Tübingen: Narr 2007.

Maximilian Gröne / Rotraud von Kulessa / Frank Reiser (Hgg.): Italienische Literatur­wissen­schaft. Tübingen: Narr 2007.

Machiavelli, Nicolò: La Mandragola. Milano: Mondadori 2006.

Manzoni, Alessandro: I promessi sposi. Per le scuole superiori. Milano: Mondadori 2000.

Sufficient linguistic proficiency for the reading of literary texts. Completed level II of language courses is recommended.

Due to substantial differences in the allocation of ECTS-Credits in various curricula (teacher training programs/specialized degree programs), the requirements for this course vary. Information will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of the course.
