Petits déjeuners Poésie

Petits déjeuners Poésie

The library of La Réserve Paris is hosting an original and poetic autumn series of events held on five different Saturdays dedicated to a great French author. On each of these one-hour occasions, literary journalist Olivier Barrot will explore the life and work of a major poet through readings of famous or lesser-known passages.

From 9.30 am to 10.30 am:

Saturday September 15th – Victor Hugo
Saturday October 6th – Louis Aragon
Saturday November 10th – Arthur Rimbaud
Saturday December 1st  – Jean Cocteau

Saturday September 15th:  VICTOR HUGO
This European literary giant, also a gifted painter, excelled in every field: novels (Les Misérables), theatre (Ruy Blas), memoirs (Choses vues) and above all poetry books that made him the undisputed leader of the French Romantic School. Exploring every seam of the soul, his poems include stunning ‘oratorios’ invoking and evoking God, progress, death, history, eternity, as well as love and springtime impulses. Nothing human was alien to him. 

The token fee of 65 euros includes breakfast and a book by the featured author. Places are limited.
