Guide to French and Francophone Literature

Illustrations de Cy est la danse macabre des

This critically revised and updated  library subject guide provides a starting point for research on French and Francophone literature in the UC Berkeley Library. For additional resources in all formats including e-books, please explore related LCSH subject headings in OskiCat or browse the shelves near the relevant call numbers supplies in this bibliography.

The guide is rather lengthy (21 pages) but is sub-divided as follows: General Guides and Literary Histories, French Language Dictionaries, Manuals and Guides to Literary Theory and Criticism, Poetry, Theater, Francophone Literature Resources, and Guides by Literary Period: Middle Ages, the Renaissance, 17th century, 18th Century, 19th century, 20th-21st century. Bookmarks on the left (viewable in most web browsers) allow one to skip through the PDF rather easily in locating a specific section.

While links to some electronic resources are provided, the French Studies subject grouping in the Library’s Electronic Resources Finder contains the most current digital resources available and should be consulted when using this guide to what are, for the most part, printed books.
