Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module aims to examine texts by four of France's greatest writers. The nineteenth century was the heyday of the novel and writers tried to convey the whole of society in their works. We will take François-René de Chateaubriand's short story René, George Sand's Indiana, Gustave Flaubert's world classic Madame Bovary, and Emile Zola's La Bête humaine and examine them not just as literary texts but also as social documents.
