Shakespeare and Company

Au premier coup d'œil, Shakespeare and Company n'est rien d'autre qu'une ènième librairie anglaise. Mais dès que vous pénétrez un peu à l'intérieur, vous commencez à découvrir ce qui fait que la devanture soit un tel musée et une telle légende. Entre les livres empilés jusqu'au plafond, il y a des notes, des annonces et des tracts laissés par les visiteurs du monde entier. Depuis 1919, le nom de Shakespeare and Company est un refuge pour les écrivains. A l'origine la librairie était le lieu de prédilection d'Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Joyce et d'autres. Aujourd'hui, des écrivains du monde entier viennent partager leur travail. Les écrivains méconnus ont aussi leur place; Shakespeare and Company loue un espace pour dormir en échange de deux ou trois heures de travail dans le magasin.

Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum

Within the humble two story house made of wood paneling, one of America's most important cultural figures not only came of age, but gained experiences that would contribute to some of the country's most memorable literary moments. The olden home of the erudite legend evokes a certain kind of literary nostalgia, which lingers over several nooks and crannies of the house, the very corners which served as inspiration for Twain to craft his revered stories. Nourished by the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, this modest house duly journeys through the iconic author's literary imaginations and unhindered writing flair. Part of the Mark Twain Historic District, the house doubles as an elaborate museum which plays host to myriad manuscripts, the author's original editions, interactive exhibits, treasured mementos and the famed fence featured in Tom Sawyer. An officially designated National Historic Landmark, this storied boyhood home helps keep Mark Twain's literature alive and relevant, even in today's times.

Jane Austen's House Museum (Chawton Cottage)

Jane Austen's House Museum is a must-see for literary buffs. Jane Austen moved here from Southampton in 1809 and began writing again, revising Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park. You can see where Jane wrote, sewed, made wine and enjoyed gardening. Her music book, a dress she wore, a quilt she stitched and the work table where she wrote her books are all on display. You can also see her donkey carriage - the door still creaks out a warning, as it did when Jane hastily hid her writing from visitors.

Les Deux Magots

Un lieu célébrissime du quartier intello-chic de St-Germain-des-Prés. Sa terrasse mythique a été le point de rencontre des grands écrivains et philosophes dans les années 50.

Housing more than 6,000,000 volumes, the Trinity College Library is one of the largest libraries in Ireland.

Other items in the library that are equally fascinating include the 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic, the Book of Durrow and the Book of Howth. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself mesmerized by the beauty and ancient charm of the magnificent library as well as the amazing collection of ancient texts. After you have toured the library, head to the Trinity College Library Shop and buy some souvenirs for friends and family.
