Confession in French 20th-Century Literature
FREN 358
Spring 2010 not offered

Since the CONFESSIONS OF ST. AUGUSTINE, the subject and function of confession has gone through considerable change. After exploring the notion of secret and the distinctions between autobiography and confession, this course will discuss the main developments that have occurred in the literature of confession. We will focus on the shift from confession of vice to confession seemingly lacking an object. Among other topics, we will discuss the conditions that appear to make confession a masculine rather than a feminine undertaking.
