FREN 472 - Myths in French Literature
A detailed study of three great myths of love fundamental to the development of French literature and thought: Narcissus, Tristan, and Don Juan. The course will help students to understand better just what a myth is, how it is structured, and how it can be transposed in French literary texts from one set of historical, cultural, and artistic circumstances to another. Readings will be selected from classic narrative, poetic, and dramatic texts from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. Cross-listed with the Comparative Literature program. This course fulfills the upper-division post-1800 literature requirement for the French major.
