Around Marguerite Duras


Singular literature. Marguerite Duras revealed her secret: she put her writing where her passion was. This was the source of her astonishing strength, through which she ensnared readers. And her sharp writing, based on the limits of experience, found an awakening in psychoanalysis. The meeting between Jacques Lacan and Marguerite Duras marked a turning point for them both.
