Edward Said, le roman de sa pensée
With Dominique Eddé
Thursday 21 November 2019, at 7 pm
Novelist and essayist Dominique Eddé evokes Edward Said, the larger-than-life Palestinian-American author, academic, literary theorist and critic. Mixing writings and biography, she paints a picture of Said, with his intellectual choices, their ambivalence and complexity, and his personal style in which oral and written, classicism and eccentricity, history, music and contemporary life come together.
The lecture will be followed by a dedication of Eddé’s recent book Edward Said, le roman de sa pensée (Editions La Fabrique, 2017).
Dominique Eddé, born in 1953 in Beirut, is the author of several novels, including Lettre Posthume, Pourquoi il fait si sombre? and Kamal Jann, a book of interviews with André Green and an essay on Jean Genet. She has also worked as a literary critic, translator and publisher.
