Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.

The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses.

The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

Le livre anniversaire des 150 ans du Bataclan

Célèbre chinoiserie de Paris, le Bataclan fêtera ses 150 ans fin 2014. Initialement dédiée aux café-concerts dès 1864, la salle connaîtra plusieurs vies : revue montée, cinéma… En 1983, elle renoue avec ses premières amours et redevient une salle de spectacles (humour, musique…). Pour célébrer l’anniversaire de cette emblématique salle parisienne, le photographe Stephan Zaubitzer a choisi l’angle de ses publics. Un large panel d’individus grâce auquel le lieu se transforme chaque soir. Pendant plus de deux ans, Stephan Zaubitzer a aménagé un studio dans ce lieu mythique et y a photographié des centaines de spectateurs, avec leurs codes vestimentaires, leur maquillage, badge ou tatouage. Photographiés seuls, en pied, de face et de dos, les personnages s’animent comme autant de figurines d’un vaste musée vivant.
Concerts photographiés entre 2012 et 2014 : Soirée 1990 ; Soirée Crazyvores ; Asap Rocky ; Die Antwoord ; Earth Wind and Fire ; Fauve ; Kev Adams ; Kid Creole and the Coconuts ; L.M.C. ; La Fouine ; Metal ; Ministry ; Wu Tang Clan.

Le photographe

Stephan Zaubitzer est photographe depuis 1991. Douze ans plus tard, sa photographie rencontre le cinéma. Il devient lauréat du World Press Photo 2004, puis est nominé au prix Roger-Pic décerné par la Scam pour son travail sur les salles de cinéma du monde. Sous la direction artistique de Françoise Huguier, ce travail est exposé au Mois de la Photographie 2008 organisé par la MEP. Avec l’aide des instituts français, il développe ce travail en Égypte, Inde et Maroc. Stephan Zaubitzer vient de réaliser Mon entreprise prend la pose, un livre de portraits pour France Initiative. Il est par ailleurs sociétaire de la coopérative de photographes Picturetank qui distribue ses archives.

Selected works of humour and criticism by a revered American master.


Beloved by millions, Mark Twain is the quintessential American writer. More than anyone else, his blend of scepticism,
caustic wit and sharp prose defines a certain American mythos. While his novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
is still taught to anyone who attends school and is considered by many to be the Great American Novel, Twain's shorter stories
and criticisms have unequalled style and bite.

In a review that's less than kind to the writing of James Fenimore
Cooper, Twain writes: "Every time a Cooper person is in peril, and absolute silence is worth four dollars a minute, he is sure
to step on a dry twig. There may be a hundred handier things to step on, but that wouldn't satisfy Cooper. Cooper requires him
to turn out and find a dry twig; and if he can't do it, go and borrow one." It's difficult to imagine anyone else writing in
quite this style, which is why Twain's legacy only continues to grow.
