Singing the Self: Italian Lyric Poetry 1220-1550
ITAL 248
Spring 2016 not offered

The sonnet was invented in Italy in the early 1200s, the dawn of a vibrant culture of lyric poetry that produced Dante and Petrarch and that continues to this day. This course will give students the technical means to understand early Italian poetry linguistically, rhetorically, and ideologically. Your spoken Italian will advance through analytical recitation exercises illuminating the musical beauty of these works. Meanwhile, our discussions will delve the philosophical and historical context of this remarkable flowering of technical prowess and literary self-expression.
