Classics of French Literature W18 (FREN*3090)

Code and section: FREN*3090*01

Term: Winter 2018

Instructor: C. Thomson


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.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
