Writing and Life, Literature and History: On Jorge Semprun

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


In 1963, French-Spanish writer Jorge Semprun published Le Grand Voyage (The Long Voyage), a fictional account of his deportation to Buchenwald. Later, Semprun became an Academy Award–nominated screenwriter and served as Spain's minister of culture. This volume of the Yale French Studies series constitutes an overall assessment of his work, spanning his broad range of genres and traditions. Including both new perspectives and pieces by authors who have written widely on Semprun, this volume is a refreshing and dynamic look at one of the twentieth-century's most interesting literary voices.
