About this Class
In this course, you’ll discover four plays from the 17th and 20th centuries.
We often refer to French as la langue de Molière. A source of national pride, Molière is often thought to have shaped the French language but he is one of many who has used theatre as a way of describing French society and its way of life. Over the course of five weeks, learn to embody Frenchness through the words of some of France's most acclaimed figures: Sartre, Beckett, Molière and Racine. Discover a quintessential play from each of these authors, and learn more about what it means to be French.
