3 November 2009 Pascal Quignard met critics and translators

Today at 10 am, in Cafe Camelot, Pascal Quignard met translators of French literature and critics of mainly francophone literature. He talked about his writing, his editorial work for Gallimard publishers as well as the tasks of the translator (Quignard translates from Chinese and classical languages), and film adaptations of his novels. A comfortable, relaxed atmosphere and unhurried rhythm of the conversation contributed to this highly inspiring discussion on the essence of literature and its future.
