Seduction French &Franco Plays
French & Francophone Lit Today
This course is designed to serve as a thorough introduction to contemporary French and Francophone literature. After a short summary of the historical evolution that lead from the epic of the Middle Ages to the literary movements of the Twentieth Century (Surrealism, Nouveau Roman…), we will focus on the recent production over the last three decades to give an overview of what is being written and read today. Students will be introduced to the broad trends, themes and aesthetics through a selection of representative authors and works (several excerpts will be circulated), including relevant figures from the French-speaking world.
