FREN 22000 - Intro to Francophone Texts

Course Credit: 1
INTRODUCTION TO FRANCOPHONE TEXTS This course explores a sampling of authors and works that have helped to shape the development of French literature from the seventeenth century to the present day. Throughout the semester, we will situate authors and their works in their times, so that students can develop an understanding of important literary, cultural, and historical contexts. Our explorations will be structured in part by literary genres: poetry, theater, short stories, and novels. Students will learn to become more skilled readers of each of these genres, while also developing a broadened palette analytical tools. Through extended classroom discussions and a sustained focus on literary analysis and writing, this course seeks to help students improve their French and prepare for more advanced coursework in French and Francophone Studies. Prerequisite(s): FREN-21600 or permission of instructor Annually. Fall. [AH, C, W]
