For countless writers, Paris has been a place to write, stroll and linger, and has been a source of inspiration. The purpose of this website is to make an inventory of ‘Readable Paris’: of locations in Paris which appear in literary works, in order to give an impression of how Paris has been described.

Students of the course Literature and the City (UCHUMLIT37) can ‘Add quotes‘.

You can search for a writer or a location by clicking ‘Search‘.
