ITAL 152 - (LT) Experiments in Italian Theatre: From Renaissance to Postmodernism

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
The course readings collectively present a diachronic history of Italian approaches to the traditional genres of comedy, tragedy, melodrama and pastoral. The first half of the course focuses on the 16th through 19th centuries while the second half explores 20th century meta-theatre and subsequent postmodern experiments. Class discussion and analysis will focus on formal and thematic distinctions among the genres, the innovative contributions of each drama in the context of the development of Italian theatrical tradition, and, where appropriate, considerations on staging and other issues of representation.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
ITAL 130  or permission of instructor.
