This site has been designed to introduce intermediate-level college students to an extensive selection of French writers and their literary texts.  The texts range from early medieval works to diverse writings from the contemporary Francophone world.  Along with including prominent works from the literary canon, I have intentionally sought to incorporate numerous texts by French women writers and Francophone authors.  My hope is that exploring these texts in conjunction with online materials will lead to a richer and more engaging experience with these compelling works.  Bonne lecture et bon courage!
