FREN 3010 - French Medieval and Renaissance Literature

A survey of literary and cultural documents written in Western Europe, with emphasis upon the literary traditions in Latin and the vernacular. From the Benedictine Rule to the Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pisan, students situate texts within their cultural context to understand both the impact of such texts upon the society which produced them and the effect of the social milieu upon literary production. Modern French versions of vernacular texts and translations of Latin works such as the Rule, the poetry of the Goliards, and the Sermon on the Song of Songs of St. Bernard Clairvaux. The lyric poets; the Pleiade. This course may be expanded to two semesters by continuing as a directed reading. (3)
