FRENCH LITERARY ENTHUSIASTS

THE FRENCH INSTRUCTIONAL BOOK CLUB OF L’UNION FRANÇAISE

FOR SUMMER 2022

The Naughty Farces of Georges Feydeau

This summer, we will read a few plays by Georges Feydeau, playwright of the Belle Époque whose work tend to involve would-be trysts interrupted in comic fashion, gentlemen and ladies running in and out of hotel rooms, jokes about pompous men and vain women outwitted, and the ridiculous ways in which love can go wrong.

This class is open to students at an intermediate level or above. We will be reading Kindle editions of Feydeau’s work which students will purchase online. While we will not be running in and out of hotel rooms, we will be laughing at characters who do.

This is an instructional book club. Note that this series is in French and requires at least an intermediate French ability for participation.

The classes will be in-person instruction.

Tuition is $100 for the entire semester.
