FREN 4438 La Fontaine and Perrault (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

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.
