La Fête Nationale 🇫🇷

"On July 14, 1789 a mob of Parisians stormed the Bastille fortress to collect a large supply of ammunition and put a fork in royal rule.

Widely thought of as the key in the French Revolution ignition, this time period spawned radical social change and brought about many influential writers and activists.

Let's meet some of the writers from this time:

During this time, Voltaire was locked up in the Bastille Prison for insulting a French nobleman. He was put away without a trial, no bail, and no form of defense. Fearing a lifelong sentence, he proposed that he be exiled to England instead, which authorities accepted.
Instead of lashing out against the government, he made it his goal to improve the French judicial system via his well crafted, observant, and persuasive writings

Rousseau inspired the modern autobiography with his writing titled Confessions. It sounds like a scandalous piece of writing, but he was far from a scoundrel. He was an influential philosopher and writer who fought on behalf of education for all. He left us with the Discourse on Inequality, which changed political thought, and he gave us these words of wisdom: “You are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody.”

Although there are many, George Sand stands out among women writers. George Sand is the pen name to novelist and memoirist Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin. She also had crazy awesome hair. During the height of her publishing debut, Sand became a voice for women of France during the 1848 Revolution. Astonished by the lack of rights available to women, she initiated her own newspaper via a workers’ cooperative where she published political essays on the need for change. She wore men’s clothing, smoked ci**rs, ignored gender roles of the time, frequented men’s clubs, and was called by the poet Alfred de Musset “The most womanly woman."
"
On behalf of all of us at WICE, have a great Bastille Day!

Hello WICE Community! I just want to say I think WICE is lovely community of people and I appreciate belonging to this group. I have met nice and interesting people, made friends, and signed up for the language learning and writing courses - well and a few lectures. Looking forward to meeting you in person (I joined during the pandemic). And also, looking forward to rejoining the bi-weekly French/English conversational groups in the Fall. Hillary Sukhonos
Next Thursday, April 15 at 5:30 p.m., a top-notch N.Y.U. professor is giving a talk on Synagogue architecture in Europe. As centuries of legal and social anti-Semitism receded in the 1800's, Jews could openly build their own temples of worship while staying to some degree under the radar. The results are well worth exploring as you will see if you register for this Cultural Studies lecture: WICE-PARIS.ORG WICE - AA151: European Synagogue Architecture: What makes it special?
