(English ST)

*In celebration of Francophonie Month*

They are all authors who have chosen French as their language of expression. A choice often guided by emotion, personal history but also by a desire for deconstruction or to make a point. Writing in French is a response to a pressing need to say something that cannot always be said in one’s native language, or to say it differently, to express thoughts through the use of certain precise words and a complex syntax. But it also offers the possibility of entering into resonance or complicity with the great writers who, over the centuries, were responsible for the glory, wealth and posterity of French thinking.
