This class, which will help students improve their speaking, writing, reading and listening in Italian, will focus on a detailed reading of what might be the most exquisite gem of the modern Italian literary crown: Il gattopardo, published in 1958 after the death of its author, Giuseppe Tomasi de Lampedusa. As we read slowly, savoring the gorgeous prose, we will also study Sicily of the Risorgimento (Unification), the novel's setting, and we will consider films, historical materials, photography, painting, geography. We will think about the nature of translations as we experiment with our own. Finally we will think about the place and relevance of novels in our digital age.
