Colloquium: Le théâtre français

French 360

Usual Description

Theater is different from other literary genres in that it uses live performers to present the work of a playwright to a live audience. Within this framework, what are the characteristics that the hero needs to display? From the semi-divine and noble heroes depicted by Racine or Corneille, to Sartre’s more humble characters, this course studies the psychological, philosophical and sociological attributes of some of the most well-known heroes in French Theater.
