Masterpieces of Italian Literature

Representative Italian masterpieces in English, from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, such as Dante's Vita Nuova, Petrarch's love lyrics, Boccaccio's short stories, Macchiavelli's The Prince, Goldoni's theater, Leopardi's poetry, and Moravia's novels, each studied in the context of its contemporary civilization. The literary texts serve as models of artistic creativity, and fundamental principles of art are examined.
