FRENCH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE The French Language and Literature section provides a selection of titles appropriate for language and literature study at the undergraduate level. The scope of this selection reflects the rapid, continuing growth of women's studies over the past two decades, and includes major works of literature, literary history, biography, and criticism. Particular emphasis has been given to the expansion of the francophone (outside of France) sections (especially Caribbean and African) and to language, reflecting the growing importance of these fields in particular. The French section also includes accessible critical guides and major works in English translation. Where possible, works are recommended in their newest, most reliable editions, with preference for compendious collected editions. Some works are available only as reprints, while a few are out of print, though still recommended. Return to Subject List
