Description

Michel Houellebecq: est-il actuellement en France notre contemporain capital?

Jeanine Parisier Plottel, Professeur Émérite, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York.

 

Le succès populaire de Michel Houellebecq le range parmi les successeurs de Victor Hugo, et plus proche de nous d‘André Gide et de Jean-Paul Sartre. C’est ainsi que les éditions Flammarion viennent de publier le premier volume de ses Oeuvres complètes, un an presque jour pour jour après les attentats contre Charlie Hebdo et la publication de Soumission, roman qui fait partie du palmarès 2016 des meilleures ventes de livres. Notre conférence examinera brièvement la vie et l’œuvre de notre contemporain capital et analysera plus en détail, Soumission. La conférence sera en français à l’Alliance Française de White Plains. Des rafraîchissements seront servis après la conference.

 

 

Michel Houellebecq:  Is He Right Now in France Our Preeminent Contemporary?

Jeanine Parisier Plottel, Professor Emeritus, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York.

 

The popular success of Michel Houellebecq ranks him among the successors to Victor Hugo and, closer to our time, to André Gide and Jean-Paul Sartre. This is why the publisher Flammarion has just released the first volume of Hoellebecq’s Oeuvre completes(Complete Works), almost exactly one year after the attacks on Charlie Hebdo and the publication of Soumission (Submission), the novel that appeared on the 2016 prize lists for the best book sales.  Our talk will briefly examine the life and work of our preeminent contemporary writer and analyze Soumission in greater detail.  The conference will be in French at the Alliance Française in White Plains. A Wine reception will follow the conference.
