ENGL 2090

Italian Cinema as Literary Art

.

Class Instructor: Dr. Lisa Verner

Class Description:                       

Description. This course surveys Italian cinema during the postwar period, charting the rise and fall of neorealism after the demise of Mussolini. Neorealism was a response to an existential crisis after World War II, and neorealist films featured stories of the lower classes, the poor, and the oppressed and their material and ethical struggles. We will consider the films of Federico Fellini, Roberto Rossellini and others in their historical contexts as literary art forms.
