Exile ...at Paris

  Exile à Paris Sorbonne 11 mars 2011                                                               In exile in Paris,

Sorbonne -  march11. 2011  

Paris is often percieved to be a friendly city for artists and writers from around the world. So much so that they adopted it this destination as a kind of literary cosmopolitan homeland. Yet in the past, many French writers and artists who settled temporarily or permanently in Paris centered on the City of Lights took on a different view. They came from Quebec, Switzerland, the Caribbean, Africa or elsewhere. Paris often generated in them a paradoxical feeling of exile more acute than that is felt by immigrants who do not speak the French language.

 

 

Hence a series of questions:

 

*The French American, European and African are they more likely to live in "exile" in Paris? What are effects of sharing a common language - but with many differing accents?

 

*Are French writers best placed to reveal the cultual exclusivity of the City of Light?

 

*What symbolic power struggles underlie the willingness of writers to be recognized in Paris?

 

*Is there a distrust of Parisian literary writers to amongst French from other parts of the world?

 

*What Paris has been imagined when compared with reality of living the French way?
