Comparative Literature and French

Comparative Literature broadens the study of literature to transcend national boundaries to consider works from other countries and cultures. Taking Comparative Literature alongside French, you are able to make use of language skills and insights into French culture to study European literature in close detail. In Comparative Literature, you have the opportunity to study texts ranging from Classical Antiquity to the present day in English translation, including works by authors such as Homer, Ovid, Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe, Dostoevsky, Dickens, Joyce, Woolf and Kafka, as well as French classics such as Balzac, Flaubert, Camus and Proust. French is one of the most beautiful romance languages. Outside of France it is spoken as far afield as Canada, the Seychelles, Madagascar and Mali. It is one of the official languages of the United Nations, and an important language in the EU. Studying at our Canterbury campus gives you a good opportunity to immerse yourself in the language.
