Il me bruinait au coeur tant la sombre tristesse m'envahissait, et je logeais dans ma cervelle tous les diables... more...

Décryptez l?univers d'Albert Camus en moins d?une heure ! Novembre 1913, Mondovi, Algérie. Un des écrivains français les plus prestigieux du XXe siècle vient de naître.

An NYRB Classics Original Shakespeare, Nietzsche wrote, was Montaigne?s best reader?a typically brilliant Nietzschean insight, capturing the intimate relationship between Montaigne?s ever-changing record of the self and Shakespeare?s kaleidoscopic register of human character.

In The Plausible World , the intersections of literature and cartography enable readers to understand that place is anything but purely geographic: a plausible world is created as a strategy to fill the void.
