The objective of this course is to help students consolidate the linguistic competence acquired in previous French courses. Lessons will help in the preparation or university textual analysis, self-correction and, moreover, train learners in the fundamentals of stylistics and rhetoric. At the end of the course, students should also be able to apply grammatical knowledge to literary interpretation, as well as identify specific stylistic features at work in given texts. The instructor may modify syllabus if needed.
