FREN 463 - Love/Humor/Soc Erly Mod France
Through an examination of early modern narrative works in the context of the Renaissance worldview and Western literary and philosophical traditions, we will explore how each writer under consideration addresses love, exploits humor, critiques society, or interrogates the act of writing in establishing his or her authorial voice. In addition, the course provides students with training for improvement in the skills of close reading and textual analysis. Writers to be studied include Rabelais, DuBellay, Louise Lab?, Des Periers, Marguerite de Navarre, and Montaigne. This course fulfills the upper-division pre-1800 literature requirement for the French major.
