FREN 361 - Colloquium: Les Voix Amoureuses

3 HU, CD 
Second Semester. Love has provided inspiration for poetry and song since the beginning of time.  Medieval poets begin the French tradition, crafting a model of love to which later authors are called to respond.  In this colloquium, we will explore the development of the love tradition in the middle ages.  We will then consider how literary works through the modern period honor, refine, or undermine that tradition and others.  We will consider the interplay of gender and tradition, and the way that authors recall and rework established genres.  Readings will include works by Guillaume de Lorris, Ronsard, Labé, Racine, Marivaux, Baudelaire, and Duras, among others.
