Classics of French Literature (FREN*3090)
Code and section: FREN*3090*01
Term: Winter 2020
This course offers students the opportunity to engage with texts considered part of the French literary canon. What makes a literary classic? Why do some texts stand the test of time, while others disappear or are excluded from the canon? Students will examine these questions and will analyse texts that may range from the plays of Molière and Racine to the novels of recent francophone Nobel-prize winners.
