FRENCH 41: Masterpieces of French Literature in Translation

David Andrew Jones

(Submission #54)

Course Description

This course will focus on significant works of French and Francophone literature. Specific topics and works to be considered will vary from semester to semester and section to section. Students will study works in their cultural contexts, and will focus on the style and structure of the works, and their influence on subsequent literature, in French and other languages. We will address the question of the evolution of genres and ideas during the time period studied. Students will be asked to reflect on their role as readers of texts, and how cultural context and rhetorical analysis are combined in the discipline of literary analysis.
