Book Club n°7 - Pour un oui ou pour un non - Nathalie Sarraute

Pour un oui ou pour un non” is a play written by Nathalie Sarraute in 1981. The core of the synopsis is a futile -yet of great importance- argument between two friends, about a single sentence, pronounced before the begining of the play : “C’est bien, ça”. The tone, the intention behind it and the circomstances are meticulously analysed, giving us a clear impression of the unspeakable nature of language.

I enjoyed the talk on Friday given by Nicolas.  All praise to him for delivering it in such good English.

Je voulais juste dire que moi aussi j’ai aimé ces petits amuse-bouche de la littérature française donnés au cours du book club en ligne pendant le confinement. C’était d’autant plus agréable que je pouvais y accéder de ma ville à 40 km de Cambridge! Merci Gaël pour vos explications sur les auteurs et les textes.

Merci d’avoir mis en place le Book Club en ligne.  Je trouve que nos séances ont été réussies même chez Zoom, tout le monde a eu l’occasion de participer, même plus peut-être que dans notre situation normale. Le choix de courts morceaux – contes, poèmes – a donné la possibilité de beaucoup de variété dans la même heure, la discussion n’a pas tari, et merci à Gaël de nous avoir fourni tant de mises en scène.

I have been happy with all the teachers we have had and all the subject matter – bottom line for me is that it is French and there is always something to learnI am also very much enjoying the Club de Lecture never having been able before Covid to attend.Gael is very ‘sympa ‘ and knowledgable.
