The language is the media par excellence which make it possible to be expressed and to express its emotions. By the media, the language takes part in the radiation of the culture.

“Transitory” is one of the most beautiful words of our language, it evokes at the same time the life and the theatre…

On December 12th, 2013, Dany Laferrière is elected with the French Academy. Born in Haiti, it begins a career from journalist to the weekly magazine the Small one Saturday evening. It leaves for Quebec in 1976, fleeing the dictatorship of Duvalier. It launches out in the writing with a first novel-shock How to make love with a negro without tiring itself (1985). Celebrate, it becomes the representative of a generation which will revolutionize the writing of the novel with its American Autobiography. Award-winning of the Médicis Price for the enigma of the return, Laferrière built a patient and powerful work which consists in mixing with grace fiction and reflection. Translated into 15 languages whose Korean, Japanese and German, the work of Dany Laferrière radiates in the world. 

Dany Laferrière answers the CSA on his mobilization in favour of the French language. 

Inhabitant of Quebec of Haitian origin, you also lived in the United States. You are translated into 15 languages. Why write in French? 

I was born in Haiti where French is the official language. My first language is the Creole but my intellectual life was done in French. I speak, I write and I live in this language. 

Writer of French language, you are an active representative of the francophonie. Does this language convey with your direction certain values more than of others?

It is a question which frightens me always a little. I believe that a language reflects the values of that which speaks it. One does not become good because one expresses oneself in such or such language. It happens that French, so rich in nuances, allows a greater flexibility in the human relations.

Which would be your word or French expression fetish?

I am writer: I do not have a word fetish, it is all the dictionary which me fascine!



Vianney ©DR

Song writer and performer, Vianney asserted himself with its first album “White Ideas”. He was crowned “better male artist” with the Victories of the Music, on February 13th, 2016. Self-educated musician, it makes initially studies of trade between France and London after having been boarder at the military high school of Saint-Cyr military school. It recently was graduate of a school of stylism in Paris. Its passion for the music goes back to its childhood: “The French song, explains the interested party, it is my culture”. Subtle Melodist, it practises, like the one second nature, the art of the musical gimmick.

Vianney answers the CSA on his mobilization in favour of the French language. 

 You say “not to find of equivalent to French (…) from the point of view of the texts”. What brings French to you or whom enables you it to express that another language would not allow?

At the time of describing a situation, a feeling, French allows an incredible precision, because of its lexical and grammatical wealth. I found only too seldom this variety of language in the anglophone song, which I however like in a visceral way.

Do the young generations have particular responsibility with respect to French?

Of course, it returns to the young generations to defend our language and its (its) wealth (S). The evolution of French is absolutely logical; but it is advisable to have for the spirit what makes its unicity and its force.

Which would be your word or French expression fetish?

In the fondant kind in mouth, the word “melancholy” is rather sublime!
