Hugo: Man of His Century

Hugo: Man of His Century
In this senior seminar we will explore the 19th century through the work of Victor Hugo. His identification with his time is a natural starting point to study the interface of society, literature, and art. We will read two novels, two plays, numerous poems, 19th century newspapers, and Hugo's theoretical essays. Students will choose to research one of Hugo's many dimensions (poetry, novels, plays, drawings), or deepen their knowledge of a specific period of the century through Hugo's political commitment. This seminar will include a significant research component. (Open to French Senior Majors). 3 hrs. lect./disc.
