Event Description

FREN527: "17th-century French literature seminar"

Dr. Kathleen Loysen

15 July-8 August 2019

In this course, we will study the major innovations and trends of seventeenth-century French literature. Crossing genre boundaries from prose and poetry to theater, we will investigate such areas as the development of the roman d’analyse and the epistolary novel; salonnier and communal writing productions such as poetry, letters, and moralist literature; the establishment of the norms of tragedy and comedy; the interplay between movements toward linguistic purity stemming from the Académie française and those toward linguistic diversity emanating from précieux circles; and influence on literature from religious and political spheres. Readings will be drawn from the works of Madame de Lafayette, Mlle de Scudéry, Mme de Sévigné, Voiture, Descartes, Pascal, La Rochefoucauld, Corneille, Racine, and Molière.
