from French in Ann Arbor


8. La promenade du côté de Guermantes. 165-187. Les nympheas de la
Vivonne. Suis-je un écrivain?. "S'il était assez simple..."

Notre but est de faire apparaître les liens secrets entre les différents
motifs, la signification cachée de certaines expressions et la façon
dont le moindre détail de cette tapisserie se rattache à l'idée d'une
recherche du "Temps perdu" (dans les quatre sens de cette expression).
Ou, pour user d'une image empruntée à Gide, de découvrir en quoi LA
RECHERCHE est "une forêt où il est agréable de se perdre."

Vous n’aurez probablement pas la Pléiade mais le texte est en ligne au

p. 199 à la fin


I taught French literature at the University of Michigan between 1966 and 1994 and have a very dear memory of initiating my students to the often obscure language of poets of the 19th and 20th century. It was a very rewarding experience for them and also for me. Most people today do not know how to react to texts which seem absurd and yet deal with the most fundamental questions that we ask ourselves. You will hopefully leave this course having overcome your inhibitions in the face of poetry, whether French or not.


Crystal Cannon is a high school French teacher from Detroit. She is married with one child. She loves reading, traveling, fine dining and good music.


Teaching French is a passion and a hobby. But, my world would not be complete without my family, my friends, my garden, literature, music, knitting, movies and exercise!!!


Born in Romania, lived in Connecticut 25 years, moved to Ann Arbor in 2012. I love France and French language and I want to improve my conversation in French.


Bonnie joined the Peace Corps and went to Burkina Faso in West Africa, taking her music along for company. She is back earlier than planned and wants to continue her French studies and singing too.
