Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, students' German language skills correspond to the C1 level of the CEFR. In accordance with the periodization adopted in our French literature courses (first year: from 1850 to today; second year: Eighteenth century and first half of the Nineteenth century; third year: Sixteenth and Seventeenth centuries), this course introduces to French literature from 1700 to 1850. The course will focus on great authors and texts belonging to different literary genres, and will also improve the knowledge of the literary movements and of their historical, sociocultural, aesthetic contexts, including the possible relationships between the arts. A particular attention will be payed to the various and important aspects of the publishing industry during the period, as the course also addresses to the students of the Bachelor's degree in Languages and Cultures for Publishing. The course, as well as the primary and secondary bibliography, will be in French, which is intended to help students to improve their linguistic comprehension and fluency. At the end of the course, students shall therefore acquire overall knowledge of the history of French literature from 1700 to 1850 (main literary movements, authors and works), along with the capacity of applying, in French, critical and textual analysis competences to the texts presented during the course.
