And do any of these come with accompanying workbooks? Lit guides? Anything that could be used as a supplementary writing/comprehension extra, or are Lit guides uniquely American phenomena?
For the Maupassant, I happened to have a French textbook that basically covered all of it-they didn’t reprint the whole novella but expected you to read the whole thing and there were excellent comprehension questions, essay prompts, and even more literary context things, such as a rubric on “words of realism” using other examples. It was perfect.
I’d continue using this book because it has little pieces of literature organized around a theme, example: we are doing “the City” next and it has an essay from Sarte on NYC, and the Balzac piece on Paris, some architecture stuff type stuff, etc. It’s just I really (really) prefer to have the audio, but if you don’t need that,get a french textbook and teacher manual.
There are lit guide versions, I had a Moliere that way, look at biblio-college series but there’s a ton. Alas, they’re meant for school and I couldn’t find the teacher manual (or even answer book) for those. My own french is crap as you know
