Ticket price

Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professors Peter Hainsworth and David Robey look at the recurring themes and issues in Italian literature from the Middle Ages to the present day. They look at regional identity, political disunity and the role of national language in authors such as Dante, Petrarch, Manzoni, Montale, and Calvino. Hainsworth is professor emeritus at the University of Oxford and Robey is professor of Italian at Reading University. They are co-editors of the Oxford Companion to Italian Literature.
