Du rêve et des drogues / Dreaming and Drugs

Du rêve et des drogues / Dreaming and drugs presents a chapter from a 1980 interview with the writer Marguerite Yourcenar. Played by Jean-Baptiste Naudy, Yourcenar elaborates on the aesthetic structure of dreams, diagrams relations between scholarly knowledge and imagination, and insists on the formidable presence of re-constructed characters in the realm of the historical, and discusses the médiumnique relationship between the consciousness of writers and that of the characters they set to paper.

Performed by Jean-Baptiste Naudy
