French and Italian | Italian Reading & Expression
M301 | 33826 | Nussmeier, Anthony


In this course students 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. Students will also deepen their understanding of intermediate
and advanced grammar structures through daily practice of structures
in speaking and writing activities that revolve around our texts and
other personal and popular culture genres. Primary semester goals
include reading and writing analytically with greater accuracy and
ease, and speaking with greater fluency and confidence about literary
and other artistic and journalistic texts. Conducted in Italian.
