Poetry, Calligrams, and More: Creative Projects for FREN 3250, French Poetry

In the Fall 2012 class, taught by Christophe Wall-Romana, students were encouraged to complete creative projects in lieu of midterms.

The results were impressive.

To demonstrate our understanding of the poetic elements of the films we had watched in class, our projects reflected themes or ideas from works such as A Bout de Souffle, Le Tempestaire, Ballet Méchanique, etc. It was a great opportunity for us to bring our creative perspective into our work and break the mold of the typical essay format when interacting with texts.
