French and Italian | Italian Reading & Expression
M301 | 11107 | Cappozzo, Valerio

In this course we will learn to analyze texts from the main literary
genres (lyric poetry, epic poetry, narrative, theater, songs, cinema)
using specialized vocabulary, basic literary tropes and rhetorical
figures, and basic principals of poetic rhyme and meter. We will also
deepen our understanding of intermediate and advanced grammar
structures through daily practice of structures in speaking and
writing activities that revolve around our texts. Therefore, primary
semester goals include reading and writing analytically with greater
accuracy and ease, and speaking with greater fluency and confidence,
particularly about literary texts.
