FREN 4438 La Fontaine and Perrault (Spring: 3 )
Jean de La Fontaine and Charles Perrault occupy special places in the history of seventeenth century French literature: though they practiced forms apparently aimed at a young audience (fables and fairy tales) they also played crucial roles in cultural and political debates that divided intellectual of the times. We will rediscover these minor classics with new eyes and multiple perspectives.
