Henry James and the French Realists

Vortrag mit Prof. Mary Boyington Ph.D, Syracuse U-Programm in Straßburg | Im Rahmen der Ringvorlesung "Stephen Crane's Times"

We will look at Henry James's travels to Paris over the course of several decades and how his encounters with French writers shaped and influenced the American novelist. The lecture will examine both James's fiction and non-fiction writing. In preparation for the class, a working knowledge of major 19th century French authors (Balzac, Flaubert, Zola, Maupassant) would be helpful.
