ITAL 220 - Italian Roots and Branches

1 unit(s)
We explore political, economic, social, cultural and linguistic phenomena of the thirteenth-sixteenth centuries, which are essential to the understanding of contemporary Italian culture and society. We search in early modern literary texts for the roots of our contemporary Italian society. We apply a wide range of strategies to experience, comprehend, interpret, and evaluate the texts (progressive reading). We read brief but significant selections from major authors of the time, among others: Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Machiavelli, Castiglione,  Compiuta Donzella, Gaspara Stampa, and Veronica Franco. Eugenio Giusti.

Prerequisite(s): ITAL 217 ITAL 218  or permission of the instructor.
