Learning Objectives

Contemporary literature is presented within a European and world temporal and geographical scenario (with the advent of capitalist society, in particular after the second industrial revolution). Faced with this scenario, in the perspective of a historical-philological study, not without comparative openings, of the topics addressed, the student can reach a deeper conception of the "modern" as it is realized in the twentieth century: the decisive century in which they come to combs the different knots from Western civilization, between scientific-technological development and colonialist exploitation, awareness of the crisis and political utopia. Accustomed, therefore, to the direct reading of Italian texts in a European horizon, and to interrogate them on the basis of a conscious reflection on the methods used for their interpretation, the student will be able to integrate and rearticulate, in the name of complexity, their knowledge about literature and to manage them with rigor and passion, as befits a subject that does not ask to be neutral, inert, opaque, but proposes itself, thanks to the cultural depth of its texts, as a dialectical junction between memory and fictional.

Program

The Diaologhi con Leucò by Cesare Pavese. Internal history of the book, and its place in Pavese's work. A lesson "beyond" history. Myth, childhood, death; and the remains of the world.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The aim of the course is to allow the student (a) an ability to integrate knowledge and manage the complexity of the issues addressed in the context of a European historical-cultural and critical-literary horizon, as well as to formulate judgments on the basis of learning and reflection on the critical methodologies developed during the twentieth century (from historicism to gender and intercultural studies), including reflection on the social and ethical responsibilities of the literary text linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments; therefore (b) the possibility of communicating in a clear and unambiguous manner the arguments and possibly the conclusions (assuming it is possible to conclude), including the underlying rationale, to both specialist and non-specialist interlocutors; finally, (c) the ability to develop those critical and didactic skills that allow you to continue studying independently, in view of the possible continuation of studies or any professional application.
