FREN 586 (Undergraduate 433/333) Seminar in 20th Century Literature: George Simenon, a Belgian-French novelist, is considered the most widely published author of the twentieth century. The character he created, Inspector Jules Maigret, who made him rich and famous, ranks only after Sherlock Holmes as the world's best known fictional detective. Most of Inspector Maigret's cases are set in and around Paris and the social and geographical environment often provides the underlying cause of the crime. Four novels will be examined closely. Please be aware that this is a course taught completely online and that no face to face meetings are required. Will tentatively be offered 5/20-6/14, 2013
