Wednesdays at 11:00am-1:00pm
12/15/2021 to 12/15/2021
Instructor: Rebecca Raitses

In her popular song, “Tout oublier” Belgian singer Angèle claims that “le spleen n’est plus à la mode.” In this workshop, students will first learn about what Charles Baudelaire meant by “spleen” in order to debate Angèle’s statement. We will start with an introduction to the French lexicon of poetry with which students will be able to identify formal aspects of a poem. We will discuss the differences, as well as the commonalities, between the poet’s work in verse (Les fleurs du mal) and his work in prose (Le spleen de Paris).

This workshop is part of Try Something New Week program.

Open to B2/C1 level students.

The focus of the workshop is on writing and you will participate in individual and group writing games/exercises, along with some reading, lecture, and discussion.
