FRE363H5 • Love and Pain in French Literature

Description

This course explores the tension between love and pain in a range of French literary works from 1800 to the contemporary era. Students will apply their previous knowledge in literature, and oral and written competences in French, to the study of multiple autobiographical and literary genres. Particular emphasis will be placed on extending attentive reading skills as ways of reflecting on first- and third-person writing and its relationship to love, social context and expectations, and gender.
