Titolo - modulo A o unicoEarly Modern Popular Culture between real life and representation
Argomento: Modulo AThe course will focus on the paradigm of stage representation of real cultural aspects of civic life in Early Modern Britain. The discussions and the analyses of the texts selected as case studies will focus mainly, but not exclusively, on theatre texts from the early Tudor period to the Restoration, and beyond. Main theatrical and discursive conventions, the wide question of literary influence and the development of the representational paradigm, are issues that will be studied in the first instance.
