ITAL 130 - Introduction to Stylistics and Literary Analysis

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically  
Close readings and analyses of poetry and prose works will encourage sensitivity toward and appreciation of literary texts. Readings and assignments seek to prepare students for higher-level literature courses in Italian. Students will analyze how meaning is communicated through lexical choice, syntax, rhetorical devices, point of view, sound, rhythm and meter. Students will also develop an awareness of key authors, literary currents, and genres in Italian literature in addition to amassing a vocabulary of the critical terms of literary analysis. Essay-writing skills in Italian will be developed through assignments that focus on stylistic and thematic analyses of texts read and discussed extensively in class. Peer-editing and multiple drafts are essential components of the writing process.
