Musings on life in Lodeve, Languedoc

MIchel Butor in Lodeve

Michel Butor
Who is Michel Butor? When I heard he was going to be the chief guest at the poetry festival I thought his name sounded familiar. Then I remembered. In the 1980s I had read a book of his set in Manchester, which was where I then lived. He called the place Beston and had written the book when he was a lecturer at Manchester University in the 1950s.

L'emploi du temps
As well as his novels and poetry, he has written about philosophy, art, literature, and the theory of music among other things. His work is much too complicated for me to discuss here, so I refer you to this report from March this year.
I enjoyed an evening presentation in the Jardins de la Megisserie

In his morning sessions in the peaceful garden behind Horizons Intérieurs he told us about his life now.
Waiting for Micgel
I’m not sure what the cats and rabbits thought about it.
Still waiting
