Introduction
Although the French people are of mixed origin, having Celtic and Germanic as well as Roman strains in their composition, it is the Roman that has counted most. The French language itself may be regarded as a modern form of Latin . The Latin genius, as it has often been called, has seemed to hover over the development of the French culture and determine its destinies. It has bestowed upon the French people their love of order, clarity and reasonableness, their instinctive avoidance of extremesthe very qualities which are most conspicuous in their literature. In all artistic matters the French are essentially conservative, despite the fact that they have often been initiators of new movements. The French have always taken ideas and aesthetic matters seriously. Their literature is therefore the best from which to study literary movements. For that reason and because of its long and illustrious history and its influence on other literatures, French literature occupies, as it were, a central position. The French have sometimes characterized themselves as possessing the esprit gaulois the Gallic spirit, meaning by that a light-hearted gayety, a tendency to mock, and a refusal to take life or men too seriously. This Gallic spirit can indeed be detected all through French literature. Nevertheless, there is a fundamental earnestness in the French outlook which foreigners have too frequently been prone to overlook. As a matter of fact, most of the great French writers do not markedly display this so-called Gallic spirit.

French literature
The French language is a romance dialect derived from Vulgar Latin and heavily influenced principally by Celtic and Frankish . Beginning in the 11th century , literature written in medieval French was one of the oldest vernacular (non-Latin) literatures in western Europe and it became a key source of literary themes in the Middle Ages across the continent.

From LoveToKnow 1911
FRENCH LITERATURE.' Origins. - The history of French literature in the proper sense of the term can hardly be said to extend farther back than the 11th century. The actual manuscripts which we possess are seldom of older date than the century subsequent to this. But there is no doubt that by the end at least of the i ith century the French language , as a completely organized medium of literary expression, was in full, varied and constant use. For many centuries previous to this, literature had been composed in France , or by natives of that country, using, the term France in its full modern acceptation; but until the 9th century, if not later, the written language of France, so far as we know, was Latin ; and despite the practice of not a few literary historians, it does not seem reasonable to notice Latin writings in a history of French literature. Such a history properly busies itself only with the monuments of French itself from the time when the so-called Lingua Romana Rustica assumed a sufficiently independent form to deserve to be called a new language. This time it is indeed impossible exactly to determine, and the period at which literary compositions, as distinguished from mere conversation, began to employ the new tongue is entirely unknown. As early as the 7th century the Lingua Romana, as distinguished from Latin and from Teutonic dialects, is mentioned, and this Lingua Romana, would be of necessity used for purposes of clerical admonition, especially in the country districts, though we need not suppose that such addresses had a very literary character. On the other hand, the mention, at early dates, of certain

French Literature Literature in France can be traced back to the times before the modern French language had been developed. Literature written in the French language as we know it today began emerging around the 11th century. Prior to this, literature in France was recorded using Latin. Influenced by many cultures, literature later began taking on a true French flavour and has since flourished and made important contributions to European literature.

    French Literature
    Origin and foundations of the French language
    When the Romans became masters of Gaul , they imposed their language on that country, together with their religion , their laws their customs, and their culture. The low Latin , which thus became universal throughout Gaul , was not slow in undergoing a change while passing through Celtic and Frankish throats, and in showing traces of climate and of racial genius. From this transformation rose a new tongue, the Romance, which was destined to gradually evolve itself into the French . The glossaries of Reichenau and of Cassel contain many translations of Latin and Germanic words into Romance; they date from the eighth century. The earliest texts in our possession belong to the ninth century, and are more valuable from an archeological than from a literary standpoint. These are the formulas called "Les Sermentsde Strasbourg" (the oaths pronounced by the soldiers of Louis the German and of Charles the Bald, A.D. 842); the song or "Prose de Sainte Eulalie", an imitation of a Latin hymn of the Church Latin and Romance, dating from the early part of the tenth century; "La Vie de
