French and Italian | Seminar in Modern Italian Literature
M605 | 15330 | Ciccarelli, Andrea

Topic: La tradizione poetica moderna.  In this course we will
analyze the major developments of the modern Italian lyric trends
with an eye to both their relationship to the Medieval and
Renaissance Italian tradition as well as to the novel trends that
developed in the early twentieth-century and reach well into the
current times. We will read poets such as Foscolo, Leopardi,
Gozzano, Saba, Ungaretti, Montale, Luzi and focus on movements such
as Futurism and the Avant-guarde.
