FREN 450 - French Narrative in the Early 20th Century

The first part of the 20th century marks a shift in the modern Hexagonal French narrative from the pursuit of objectivity and the representation of social structures and systems, to a greater preoccupation with subjectivity, the exploration of personal identity, and interpersonal relations. Through the close study of texts by authors such as Gide, Proust, Breton, and Yourcenar, this seminar examines the ways in which questions of personal identity and subjectivity are explored through new approaches to traditional narrative forms.
