French And Italian | Lectures et analyses littéraires
F300 | 2401 | Isbell


In this course, taught as creative writing, we'll read (and act out!) a
bittersweet Romantic comedy by Musset, On ne badine pas avec l'amour
("Don't mess around with love"); a half-realist, half-fantastic volume of
twentieth-century Contes et nouvelles; Albert Camus's L'Etranger
("The Outsider"), a famous story of the human condition; and a lovely
collection of French poetry since 1850, where we will discover "The Poets'
Tool-Box". As homework, we'll write a poem, retell a fairy tale and create
a one-act play.
