Madness & Reason in Fren Lit
This course will offer a different view of 19th century literature. Instead of studying the famous "big novels" of the period, we will choose to uncover contradictions present in nineteenth century ideology. The social malaise, a product of conflicts between progress, civilization and passion, will emerge in texts telling stories of happiness, anxiety, hermaphrodites, murder, isolation and social conformity. Readings will include: Chateaubriand, René; Balzac, Sarrasine; Mérimée, Lotkis; Zola, Thérèse Raquin; Maupassant, Le Horla (FREN 0221 or by waiver). 3 hrs. lect./disc.
