Fables, Foibles, Messages, and Morals: Varieties of French Moralistic Literature
FREN 303
Fall 2009 not offered

The course will attempt to acquaint the student with the broad range of works--poetry, fiction, theater, etc.--from the Middle Ages to the present, whose didactic intent--sometimes primary, sometimes a thin pretext for artistic expression--serves as a unifying theme. Works studied will be as diverse as medieval Aesopica and courtesy-books on the one hand and dramatic PROVERBES of Musset on the other. Among the other authors studied will be La Fontaine, Voltaire, Vigny, Dumas fils, and Gide.
