Literature

Greek mythology is not only interesting, but it is also the foundation of allusion and character genesis in literature. In this scenario, students will gain an understanding of Greek mythology and the Olympian Gods and goddesses.



The scenario explores with the students three models of European realist literature:

-         Charles Dickens (1812-1870);

-         Benito Pérez Galdós (1843-1920);

-         Giovanni Verga (1840-1922).


the scenario introduces the development of the cultural movement of PreRomanticism in England. In particular, about the first manifestations of the sepulchral and nocturnal taste: 

- Thomas Gray (1716-1771); 

- Robert Burns (1759-1796); 

- James Thomson (1700-1748).

In this series of lessons, the students are going to learn about lullabies and their importance, study traditional lullabies from all over Europe and observe their similarities and then they are going to focus on three particular lullabies written by three different European poets, and to compare them with each other as well as with traditional lullabies.

children aged 6 to 9 will learn to read and understand simple texts, as well as to produce written texts-
