FREN 376 - Maj Fr Novelists 20thC(1900-50
The purpose of this course is to expose  students to major works, writers, and literary movements of the  first half of the twentieth century. Readings include texts by  Colette, Proust, Mauriac, Sartre, Camus, and Sarraute. Our  discussions will address the intellectual and philosophical issues  raised by their novels, such as proto-feminism, existentialism, notions of the absurd, memory, and forgetting. We will likewise  study the narrative and stylistic innovations that make their works  classics of the twentieth-century French tradition. By the end of  the semester, students will have acquired better skills for close  textual analysis, writing, and oral expression. This course fulfills the upper-division post-1800 literature requirement for the French major.
