CREDITS: US 3/4 - ECTS 6

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course will introduce students to Italian literature of the twentieth century using the theory of the avant-garde as a critical jumping-off point from which to study the movements within, and the resistances to Italian literary tradition that marked this turbulent historical period. To accentuate the stylistic and formal qualities of avant-garde literature, students will have the chance to choose between two different texts, each of which represents the various movements that we will explore and seek to define. I hope that this will enhance our in-class discussions and provide us with the opportunity to achieve a deeper understanding of the greater complexities of the scope and aims of literary movements in general.
