0 Reviews
Francophone Literatures draws together extracts from novels written in French by writers from Francophone areas outside Europe. These areas include North Africa, Black Africa, the Caribbean and North America.
The book includes the following features:
* a general introduction, which outlines the rationale and purpose of the book
* a literary and a linguistic commentary on each extract included
* a separate bibliography accompanying each section
* a glossary of linguistic terms.
The above features enable students to contextualize the extracts, identify the key literary and linguistic features and political, social, and cultural themes, to embark on further study, and to achieve their own successful text analysis by means of the models provided.
Unique in its analysis both of literary and linguistic techniques, Francophone Literatures is essential reading for students of Francophone studies.
