FREN 135 CM - L’Art de la Nouvelle

An introduction to critical reading, literary interpretation and analysis, and the application of various literary approaches to the genre. This course will allow students to perfect their reading comprehension and writing skills through the concentrated study of one genre: the short story. Focusing on some of the major French and Francophone short story writers such as Maupassant, Colette, Tournier, Yourcenar, Duras, Hébert, Djébar, Daviau, we will look at point of view, narrative structure, character development, and other issues related to style and language. The course also allows students to expand their knowledge of French language and style – and express their creativity – by writing a short story of their own.
