ITAL-469 Manzoni
Spring for 2017-2018
Professor Severino
Why is "I promessi sposi" considered by many the best historical novel in Italian and one of the best in any language? What contribution did Manzoni’s novel make to the development of the Italian language? to the Italian unification movement? to the understanding of Italian Catholicism? to the Italian romantic movement? Seminar discussions will be based on a close reading of the novel, as well as short selections of Manzoni’s other works. A variety of critical methods of interpretation will be explored both in class and in research projects leading to a critical analytical research paper. Conducted in Italian.
