The Marais

The Story of a Quartier

Keith Reader

Liverpool University Press

Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures LUP

  • The first English-language cultural history of one of Paris's most protean neighbourhoods
  • Combines a wide variety of sources, from the canonical (Balzac, Daudet, Jean Renoir) to the ephemeral or out-of-the-way (as with the two graphic novels considered)
  • Accessible to those who do not read French (all quotations translated)
  • Complements more conventional tourist guides to this popular area with a broader historical and contextual perspective
  • Gives a sense of the quartier's present as well as of its past
