Abstract

François Truffaut's film L'Histoire d'Adèle H. offers a glimpse into the adventure of Adèle Hugo (youngest child of the poet), who, without her family's knowledge, went alone to Nova Scotia and Barbados in search of an English army officer with whom she had fallen in love. Further research reveals aspects of her mysterious life that engage students in reading autiobiography, biography, diaries, letters, and poetry, which in turn lead to creative writing activities. This article presents specific ideas on how to use the film as the point of departure for more in-depth reading and writing projects.
