Learning outcomes

The course aims to present the French literature from the 16th to the 21st century and particularly through the myth of Medea, which will be studied in its evolution from the ancient times until contemporary French literature. Moreover, the professor intends to provide students with the theoretical and methodological tools for the literary and linguistic analysis of the proposed texts. The lessons will be held in French, with the purpose of improving the students’ linguistic level as well.
