The audiovisual components and computerized montages, made available on the IFUPE website during the course as extensions of it, will be particularly rich and varied, lending an extra dimension to our work.

  

Understanding the place of literature in French culture can be done only by taking account of the emblematic figure of "grand écrivain" in France. Based on the study of paradigmatic cases, we shall consider these embodiments of literature.

  

The figure of the "grand écrivain" in France

  Several works from different periods are investigated following major unifying themes. This way, we plan to inculcate a critical faculty essential for reading French literature.

  

Commented readings

  


SYLLABUS

In certain cases, during the session, paperback editions of the works studied will be distributed to students (free, of course).

As the course progresses, selected extracts from the texts studied, especially poetry, will be read by an actress who specializes in such work. In this way, they will be fervently brought to life.

The “extras” in the French literature module

  

Directly linked to the extramural cultural modules, we shall give concrete reality to class work on great writers by leading visits to places related to their lives (writers' houses, museums…).

  

Link with the extramural cultural modules

Figures of "great writers"

  

  

We analyze with students the different works prescribed at the beginning of the session, texts chosen from different periods of French literary history. An approach to style and to the canonical value of the selected works (novel, poetry...).

The study of French literature within the perspective of the general culture that we plan to offer implies two aspects: an approach to French literary history, but also the discovery of great works studied throughout the study session. Two aspects which offer a genuine introduction to French literature, one of the pillars of the course in general culture proposed by the Institute.
