Imitating Italians

Jhumpa Lahiri

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

A beginning fiction workshop designed to introduce students to the craft of imitation as a point of creative departure. Reading the works of a series of contemporary Italian masters¿Alberto Moravia, Cesare Pavese, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedeusa, Natalia Ginzburg, Italo Calvino, Antonio Tabucchi, Giorgio Bassani, among others–we will experiment with a range of techniques, styles, and themes. Echoing the voices of these authors, composing weekly exercises, we will strive to locate and articulate our own. All readings will be in translation.
