Analyse et interprétation de textes littéraires

(Analysis and Interpretation of Literary Texts)

Course description:

Ce cours vise à familiariser l'élève avec des méthodes d'analyse permettant une interprétation critique et poussée de textes littéraires français et québécois publiés entre le XIXème siècle et l'époque contemporaine.

This class seeks to familiarize the student with methods of analysis allowing a critical and thorough interpretation of literary texts originating from France and Quebec, ranging from the XIXth Century to the contemporary era.

Teaching approach:

If you love reading and are seek to understand texts in their inner workings as well as within their historical, political and sociological context, this class is for you ! My approach is both friendly (discussion-based) and rigorous, as we will be examining texts from up close while engaging with them in a dynamic way. I am also highly flexible and comfortable with a wide range of texts, so I can adapt the course material to you individual interests and inclinations !
