The Art of the Essay|
This is both a creative writing and literature seminar, a hybrid experience where students will read some of the most momentous and important examples of the essay genre while simultaneously producing their own interpretative compositions. We will read essays by Montaigne (who covered a myriad of subjects) before moving onto later authors from the French and Francophone world (e.g., Baudelaire, Voltaire, CÚsaire, Cixous) who gravitated to this open and highly personal way of writing to further their own artistic or ideological positions.
