FREN 106. La Modernité
In this course, we will examine poetry of modernity and the city. We will examine how the city’s complexities–its development, cultures, revolutions, and inhabitants–contribute to a poetic vision that is reflected in the texts of 19th- and 20th-century major and minor writers of the French-speaking world. Poets include Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Apollinaire, and the Surrealists, among others.
This course can be taken for 1 credit.
