Hours & Credits
The organization of the lecture of French Literature follows a path from the Middle Ages to the modern day with a number of discussions on specific authors, but in insisting upon the genres, the works and their major themes. Readings of texts and use of reference materials is advised. This wide range of material is given with the goal of giving students precise basic knowledge against a chronological background, and, starting with that, to enable them to search other works, contextualize them, and to have some critical tools with which to appreciate the works.Session 1 The word Francophonie.
