BBC Radio 4 „In Our Time“: Colette

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss one of the out­stand­ing French writ­ers of the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry. The nov­els of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873–1954) always had women at their cen­tre, from youth to mid-life to old age, and they were phe­nom­e­nal­ly pop­u­lar, at first for their fresh­ness and frank­ness about women’s lives, as in the Clau­dine sto­ries, and soon for their sheer qual­i­ty as she devel­oped as a writer. Through­out her career she intrigued read­ers by insert­ing her­self, or a char­ac­ter with her name, into her works, fic­tion­al­is­ing her life as a way to share her insight into the human expe­ri­ence.
With Diana Holmes (Pro­fes­sor of French at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Leeds), Michèle Roberts (Writer, nov­el­ist, poet and Emer­i­tus Pro­fes­sor of Cre­ative Writ­ing at the Uni­ver­si­ty of East Anglia), and Belin­da Jack (Fel­low and Tutor in French Lit­er­a­ture and Lan­guage at Christ Church, Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford).“
