FREN 360 - Colloquium: Ancien Régime Women Writers


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3HU, CD, COLQ

When literary critics wrote literature textbooks in the 19th century, they inlcluded only such obligatory and iconic figures as Madeleine de Lafayette or Marie de Sévigné, omitting a great number of women writers. While literature was then generally assumed to be a man’s business, contemporary critics have exhumed many important works from the 16th to the early 19th centuries, such as those of Pernette du Guillet, Hélisenne de Crenne, Catherine Bernard, Villedieu, Olympe de Gouges, etc. This course will examine texts by these and other women authors. Enrollment Limit: 15.
Instructor: L. Thommeret
