In this class we studied revolutionary history and art as context to literature such as Le Cimetière de la Madeleine  (1800-01), Chantal Thomas, Les Adieux à la reine (2002), and rare texts from 1789-1830.

One thought on “The original “Revolution in Fiction” class

  1. This was truly one of my favorite classes at Notre Dame. Comparing the ideals of the French revolution to our modern society was one of the most interesting and compelling aspects of this course. Learning about the events that took place from a literary perspective enriched and broaden my knowledge and understanding of the motives and young democratic ideals behind one of the greatest revolutions in human history.
