Learning outcomes

The course aims to deepen the study of medieval Latin literature with particular attention to a specific literary genre, by directly analyzing the work of one or more authors particularly representative of that specific genre. Lessons will focus on the linguistic and stylistic analysis, as well on readings of the chosen texts, also considering philological aspects and using the usual tools of literary hermeneutics (metrical analysis, study of the figures of style, as well as narratology and history of the interpretation), with the aid of methodological approaches aimed at developing adequate analytical and argumentative skills.

Syllabus

The love poem in the "Carmina Burana". Reading, translation and comment of some of the most famous love compositions of this anonymous medieval Anthology.
