Lang & Literature in Quebec

Located at the crossroads between American and French cultures, Québec literature finds its roots in these two major influences. The course will follow the important stages of Québec's literary history by studying several of its most prominent and influential works. Starting with the first period of increased nationalism at the dawn of the 20th century through the Quiet Revolution and the dynamism of contemporary immigrant literature, the course will provide an overview of the socio-cultural conditions that have shaped the literature of Quebec. Several authors, entire works, and short excerpts will be studied. Different genres - poetry, novels, plays and essays - will be invoked to illustrate the richness and importance of Québec literature.
