At 27 Rue de Fleurus in Paris, Gertrude Stein established a salon that attracted many avant-garde expatriate writers, artists, and philosophers. My hope is that this blog, ruedefleurus, may become a conglomeration of philosophy, literature, and perhaps even some art of both the modern age and antiquity. As I encounter new texts, writers, ideas, and quotes, I will add and expand as I see fit. Additionally, I hope to maintain one separate page for those items I wish to include but are difficult to categorize.
Across the top of my blog are a set of books that I collect. They are the Penguin Classics Hardcover editions I will admit that I have not read all of the ones shown in the picture, however, I have read the following: Madame Bovary, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Crime and Punishment, Jane Eyre, and The Picture of Dorian Gray. (My favorite being the first and the last one–Bovary and Dorian Gray).
Regarding myself, I am a senior in high school who is currently in the midst of college letters and preparing for graduation. I love to philosophy, literature, and music. I will admit that writing is not my forte so I hope this blog will be a chance to become a stronger writer through practice, practice, and more practice.
Thanks for reading.
