漫步巴黎

漫步巴黎

My tour is starting in two weeks. I will present “Flâneur” and the art of flânerie in some Chinese universities (mainly around Beijing). If you can read Chinese, here you have an anticipation of what I will talk about.

JACQUES RÉDA

Fall 2009. It was a rainy winter afternoon in Place du Châtelet. That day I met one of the most extraordinary connoisseurs of Paris: Jacques Réda, former Director of the "Nouvelle Revue Française", author of proses poems and tales about flâneries. I consider him as the last successor of the Parisian tradition of flânerie. Here you have the result of our talks: the interview “Sept questions à Jacques Réda”, published on « La Revue littéraire », 42, January 2010.
