This module studies literary experimentation in the Italian Renaissance and the more general rethinking of literature and poetry integral to this period. This is done through the study of burlesque, satirical and popular writing as well as more accepted forms of literature, by both mainstream and marginalized authors, such as Aretino, Basile, Berni, Cellini Folengo, Gelli, Michelangelo. Sudents will thus acquire a comprehensive understanding of the variety of Renaissance literary production, of the modernity and multiplicity of its forms, and of its subversive potential.
