The students of FRE 353 French Civilization and Poetry shared original poetry with the attendees. After explaining the inspirational source of their poem and its significance, students recited their work. This semester we would like to highlight Lisa Brune, whose poem "C'est trop tard" imitated Jacques Prévert's "Déjeuner du matin" and, on a lighter note, Evan Jones, whose poem "La banane" imitated Guillaume Apollinaire's "La Mandoline, l'oeillet et le bambou."
The students of FRE 415 Senior French Capstone present the findings of their research into a cultural topic from the Middle Ages. Highlighted this semester is Adrienne Ebert who talks about monastic life and Rosemary Loehr, winner of the AATF 2012 Outstanding Senior in French Award, who talks about hospitals and medicine.
Congratulations to all the students participating!
