'Selected essays' (Vanguard Editions, 2022)
‘There has, so far, not been any literary form whose power is as great as that of the novel. The novel allows us to precisely connect, through emotion or reason, the seemingly most insignificant incidents of daily life and the thoughts, intuitions and dreams which first appear most distant from everyday language.’ Michel Butor
Mathilde Merouani is a teacher and translator from Toulouse, France. She holds the Agrégation in English and is currently finishing her postgraduate studies at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, where she wrote a Master’s dissertation on otherness and the relationship to the other in the work of Kazuo Ishiguro.
These essays are the first new translations of Butor’s work into English for more than 50 years and most of these essays are presented here in English for the first time.
