What did inspire Italian writers in the nineteenth century? This unit explores the dynamic relationship between canonical and non-canonical literary texts and the fascinating period from which they emerged. Students will be introduced to ideas (romanticism, nationalism, realism) and their influence in the nineteenth-century Italian literary and cultural production. Particular attention will be paid to the post-unification period and to texts which reflected the cultural dimension of the new Italy.
