Salon søndag d. 22. april 2018

Kære medlemmer.

I indbydes hermed til Proust-salon søndag d. 22. april kl. 15.00-17.00 i Bethesda.

Oplæsning ved skuespiller Paul Hüttel af
“På sporet af den tabte tid”: Bind 6, Guermantes’ verden II, side 87-104.

Herefter foredrag ved Proust-forsker Emily Eells, der besøger os fra Paris. (OBS: Forelæsningen foregår på engelsk):

Proust and the Americans in Paris

An exploration of Proust’s relationship with several expatriate Americans in Paris who made elusive but decisive contributions to modernism. It will move from the literary salon to the art gallery in its focus on how Anglo-American art shaped his representation of homosexuality. It will study in particular how Proust appropriated Whistler’s aesthetics in order to create his fictitious artist Elstir. His only meeting with the lesbian American writer Natalie Clifford Barney might not have influenced his own novel, but this paper proposes to foreground her part in the dynamics of Franco-American literary exchange at the time he was at work.

Emily Eells is Professor of British literature at the University of Paris at Nanterre. Her doctoral research was on Proust and she edited Sodome et Gomorrhe for Flammarion. Her monograph  Proust’s Cup of Tea: Homoeroticism and Victorian Culture was published by Ashgate in 2002.
