ADRL 1162 French Literature in English II: Literary Testimonies (Fall: 4 )

Course Description

From the Second World War to the struggle for independence of France's colonies to present-day attempts to come to grips with issues of post-colonialism and racism, writers of France and the French-speaking world beyond France's borders have borne witness to the historical events of their time. We will study these literary testimonies in the writings of Albert Camus (Algeria/France), Jean-Paul Sartre (France), Simone de Beauvoir (France), Frantz Fanon (Martinique), Samuel Beckett (Ireland and France), and Marguerite Duras (Vietnam/France). All in English.
