Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Violence and literature, or the heuristic function of literature against violence.

Violence has always been a source of inspiration for literary discourse and, thanks to literature, has become the subject of reflection and investigation. Violence as a theme can be found in novels, stories, theater, opera, cinema, television, video games, and many other types of art.

The literary discourse contributes to the creation of our reality as part of linguistic discourses. While literature configures, analyzes, discovers, understands, and explains the world. Literature manipulates reality, and it affects its recipients.

In the seminar, we will try to provide an answer to how the expressive, figurative, logical-narrative and semantic forms of violence in the literature (but also in cinema and television) have been used to include their recipients in the discourse and also how and how far the literature has changed in a matter of violence.
