The course aims to provide the three-year courses future graduates both a preparation on the literary tradition of the twentieth century through the narrative of one of the most significant authors, and a retrospective look at the "Great War" from a particular perspective.
Expected learning results:
The course will focus not on topics that have been widely attended and already discussed and established, but on what the texts hide, to arrive at a new look at the writing of the Roman narrator and to bring the student closer to the paradigms of an imaginary universe that is never just the biographical one. Starting from the vision of the "Great War" in Alberto Moravia, this theme, particularly flourishing in literature, will be explored in depth, analysing the most explicit manifestations through the work of Vischer.
Knowledge and comprehension:
- knowledge and understanding of the fundamental issues of twentieth-century Italian literature and the manifestations of the theme of war analyzed in it;
- ability to examine texts to provide a rhetorical and formal interpretation of the works of Moravia;
- to investigate the formal cores inherent in the historical-literary context of the "Great War" and how this is expressed in literature.
Autonomy of judgment:
- ability to elaborate a critical methodology through an intertextual and intratextual observation of Moravian work;
- to prepare a linguistic and thematic analysis of the texts under examination.
- Ability to argue pertinently on the topics covered during the course.
