ITAL 5560 The Image of Women in Italian Drama (Spring: 3 )
We will examine various images of women as represented in modern and contemporary Italian plays by male and female authors, and we will discuss these representations in relation to the place and role of woman in the social landscape and intellectual life of the times. Special attention will be brought to the questions of freedom, love, and women's positions in the family and in the society. Topics include the question of dramatic form and means of dramatizing individual identity through stylistic strategies. In some cases discussion will be complemented with video.
