FREN 40 French Literature: The Approach through Genre

This course highlights significant examples of a given genre (epic, lyric, comic or tragic theater, the essay, the novel, the short story).  The approach may be historical, as when epic is recognized in its medieval form, or tragedy is defined in French classicism.  Alternatively, genres and their evolution can be studied across a broad spectrum of several centuries.  Students will consider how genre shapes the production and reception of literary texts -- how it creates expectations in its audience that may or may not be fulfilled.


A course in the FREN 10 series or permission of the instructor.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
