Jullien, Dominique
19th c. French Poetry

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

One great thing about French classes at Columbia is that they are small and you are guaranteed personal attention. This course is mainly a discussion of the reading guided by Professor Jullien. She is quiet and nice but a bit of an academic snob. It sometimes feels as though she is frustrated with having to teach such unenlightened undergraduates.


Consistent workload and sometimes quite heavy. There are 3 "devoirs" (short papers), a presentation and a final exam. Watch out for the final as she wants you to remember the specific titles of the hundreds of poems you read! However, her grading is very fair.
