Littérature Française: Textes et Contextes, Tome II: XIX et XXe siècles (0470002921) cover image

Designed as a core text for French literature survey courses, Tome II of this two-volume anthology covers the 19th to the 20th centuries. Most selections are complete works, including Camus' "La pierre qui pousse" and Duras' "Aurelia Steiner." All of the ancillary material is written entirely in French. Following the presumption that the contextes are essential to understanding the textes, Berg includes extensive pedagogical elements designed to stimulate thinking and discussion about the selections.
