Make it Short: The Italian Novella|
Spring 2007 not offered
This course will trace the development of the novella, or short story, from its origins in the 13th century through the early modern period. Although the emphasis will be on recurrent themes (love, marriage, sexual and political intrigue), and characters (especially women, priests, and princes), some attention will be given to stylistic development and to the social and historical contexts that affected individual writers.
