Early Modern French Theater in Performance
FREN 306
Spring 2017 not offered

In this advanced seminar, we will study French-language theater from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, with a focus on the tensions between theory and practice. We will read tragedies, comedies, and tragicomedies alongside and against various poetic treatises, keeping in mind the practical constraints and conditions of performance during this time. We will also consider contemporary stagings of these plays. The semester will culminate in a public performance of an early modern play. Readings, written assignments, and discussion will be in French.
