FR332
Famous Couples in 17th-Century French Literature
0.5 Credit

An introduction to major canonical works of the 17th century. Students will be provided a historical, cultural and theoretical frame helping them to achieve a personal reading of authors known as French “Classics.” We will use the notion of the “couple” – from the tragic to the romanesque – to travel through the different literary genres and characterize literary figures desperately trying to find a match.
