Certain names such as Sartre', Moliere and other famous people I had heard of, but certain others whose names I am able to recall are causing some odd reactions.
Never being interested in anything French, I find names like Mallarme'(pictured here), Racine and Stendahl recalled. I chose these among other more familiar names like Victor Hugo or Flaubert to show the diverse nature of my memory.
Poets I would expect to recall are the lake poets, Keats, Wordsworth and Coleridge not French writers from bygone eras, but for some reason those names stuck in my memory.
Marcel moved in high circles and at a time of greatness of French writing and thinking, the people he met are names we can recall for evermore.
