ITAL-413 Sicily in Cinema and Literature
Professor Severino
This course focuses on such Sicilian writers and poets as Verga, Pirandello, Quasimodo, Buttitta, Tomasi di Lampedusa, Vittorini and Sciascia, just to name a few, who, through a variety of expressive modes and themes, have added to Italian letters in a truly vigorous and encompassing fashion. With its hauntingly beautiful but often harsh landscapes, and with its enormous variety of human characters, conflicting social realities and customs, Sicily has also inspired countless films, travelogues, and documentaries, some of which will be viewed and discussed. Conducted in Italian.
