The Lost Art of Literary Criticism
2019 Germaine Brée Lecture
French, Yale University
What did it mean to be a literary critic in 1960, and what does it mean today? Kaplan will explore the life and career of Germaine Bree (1907-2001), reflecting both on her key role in bringing Albert Camus’s fiction to American readers, and on her clear-eyed engagement with “French theory” at the onset of the great culture wars of the 1960s and 1970s.
