ITAL 8820 Literary Society in Trieste at the Time of Svevo and Joyce (Fall: 3 )
The mutual relationships (of selection/exclusion or of acceptance/respect) among national cultures, their specificities and identities, and, on the other hand, the "worldwide" character of literature assume today a particular value within the discussions on the identity and unity of European culture. The state of culture and literary society in the Trieste of Svevo and Joyce, a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural city, offers an eloquent example of this thematic. In this seminar, it will be discussed on the basis of Svevo's works with particular attention to his relationship with Joyce.
