Pinocchio: The Adventures of a Puppet is of course a beloved tale of a puppet who wants to become a boy. Written in 1883 by the Italian author, Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio has been the subject of numerous books and films and in this course, we will take up some of them in order to ask important questions, including: what does it mean to be human and what makes one a puppet? Beginning with a close reading of the fable, we will then read different literary and philosophical retellings. We will also look at cinematic treatments, from Walt Disney to Spielberg to Garrone.
