The second half of the nineteenth century saw the development of a new literary genre whose paradoxical name itself, "poème en prose", defeats the classical distinction of prose and poetry as well as contributing to a new definition of what "poetry" and "poetic" mean.
This course will endeavour to grasp such a new definition by exploring the key features and the socio-cultural implication of this paradoxical genre. Once some theoretical and historical background for the problemtic genre of "poème en prose" has been established, the focus will be put on various close readings of actual nineteenth-century "poème en prose". Students will therefore be provided with methodological tools to analyse literary texts.
This subject has the following hurdle requirements:
Assessment submitted late without an approved extension will be penalised at 10% per day and in-class tasks missed without approval will not be marked.
