This course examines the literary and cultural dynamics characterizing Italian Romanticism, while at the same time investigating the socioeconomic and political components which determined the Italian Risorgimento and lead to the unification of the country. The close analysis of literary texts, critical essays, and journalistic writings, together with a comparative investigation of other countries' cultural milieu, will help to better understand the peculiarity of Italian Romanticism within the frame of a broader European context. Authors studied include Manzoni, Tommaseo, Nievo, De Marchi, Carcano, and Fogazzaro. All work in Italian.
