Classic French Narratives in English
This 10 credit module focuses on the study of some of the great narratives in French literature, both as fascinating stories in their own right and as unique gateways into various periods of French and Francophone history and culture. The texts are presented and studied in English translations. The module is taught in a mix of lecture and seminar-style classes and is assessed by means of a 1,500-word essay in English. No prior knowledge of French required.
