Paris: A Literary Anthology (Paperback)



Take a literary stroll through the streets of Paris, visit its world-famous monuments, delve into its history and wander amongst its poets and artists.

Countless author and poets have found home on the streets of Paris. In Paris: A Literary Anthology, author and academic Zachary Seager compiles beautiful, fascinating work inspired by the City of Light.

Gustave Flaubert lived through the 1848 French Revolution and Edith Wharton witnessed mobilisation for the Great War. George Orwell describes gruelling work in the depths of Parisian kitchens, whilst American travel writer, F. Berkeley Smith, casts an amused eye over the city’s lavish restaurants. Honoré de Balzac gives us Parisian intellectuals and Pablo Picasso is guest of honour at Gertrude Stein’s salon.

From the taking of the Bastille to outrage about the construction of the Eiffel Tower, this anthology celebrates the places, the people and the history of the magical, vibrant city of Paris. It is the perfect gift for anyone who has fallen in love with this beautiful city.
