I believe that – thanks to my parents, my oldest sister and my school teachers – I learned most from what I passionately read since I was a teenager, not to mention the great inspiration and experience from the novels, movies, plays I was fortunate to read or watch as a teenager. We lived in Paris 15, that is to say not far from Montparnasse and the Eiffel Tower. Although none of my parents had had this opportunity themselves (they both had to work from the age of 12), my mother took me to the Comédie Française from the age of 10 to enjoy Molière's and many other classical plays. A few years older I could watch the modern plays produced at the TNP, Théatre National Populaire (All of Bertolt Bretch for instance, thanks to Jean Vilar who was in charge then). On the other bank of the river Seine, at the Palais de Chaillot, I could watched for almost no money the movies at the Cinémathèque (thanks to Henri Langlois who created it and to André Malraux who allocated cultural funds to it).

There are two main reasons for which I like to mention the names of my many masters. The first one is that I believe students still could learn much more from reading works than from textbooks and research papers. The second reason is that most of my mentors' names remain unknown to many of my Anglo-Saxon and Scandinavian colleagues. I strongly believe that it is not enough for scholars only to be able to read english publications.
