    Just wanted to open a thread to discuss the set texts for the French literature scheduled paper. I am currently battling through the reading list; I have read the Duras and the Diderot book and half of Tartuffe.
    What did anyone else think?
    L'amant is strange but good and I enjoyed Diderot; I suspect I won't enjoy the philosophical anlaysis too much!

    You need to read L'Amant at least twice to "get" it I think. I love it, it's a truly wonderful book.
