    This course examines writings by modern French authors about painting, music, photography, and other forms of modern art. Beginning with Baudelaire?s Le peintre de la vie moderne in 1865, we will examine the different modes of perception that Baudelaire and others after him explored, both by taking words to the limits of meaning and by revealing the creative potential in various kinds of non-verbal writing. How indeed are these other ways of sensing and reading essential to ?modern life?? Some of the writers we will study are Henri Michaux, Samuel Beckett, Roland Barthes, and Helene Cixous. In addition to reading and discussion, students in this course will undertake a creative experiment of their own throughout the semester. Prerequisite: FR 211 OR FR 212 OR FR 213 OR FR 271 OR FR 270.Taught in French.
