In this subject students will read a series of experimental literary texts in French, discovering the patterns and irregularities in their structure. An understanding of how these texts are put together will be applied in a series of writing exercises employing constraints similar to those discovered in the reading. Students also explore the poetic function of language through the systematic study of word play and come to appreciate the literary potential of spoken French. On completing the subject students should have an understanding of the historical relations between the prescribed texts and a sense of experimental possibilities as yet unexplored. The subject will be taught in French.
