LITERARY ENCOUNTERS WITH MEMBERS OF THE GERMAN AND FRENCH
NATIONAL AUTHORS TEAMS
Sunday, 15 October 2017, 11.30 am – 12.00 pm
Literature discussion (German / French)
There are malicious rumours that sport and literature are incompatible – on the basis that sport places demands on the body, and literature on the mind.
A certain rivalry joins this contradiction between the two disciplines: after all, aren’t they both seeking a similar goal? Literary critic Marcel Reich-Ranicki sums up this often-misunderstood commonality: “Sport delivers its audience everything that literature does.”
