French Drama in Performance


A study and performance of scenes from French dramatic works from a variety of literary styles, movements, and eras.

Readings may include the works of Molière, Racine, Beaumarchais, De Musset, Ionesco, and Duras, which, though drawn from a wide range of time periods and approaches, are assimilated and reconciled under a common theme to be determined by the class. Prerequisite(s): one French and Francophone studies course beyond 201. Recommended background: adequate oral fluency in French, good reading comprehension.
